What's In A Number?

Act Three. What Do We Do with These Numbers Anyway?
So if, in fact, 100,000 Iraqis died because of the war — and that number is a year old — what do we do with that number? So Ira turns to Nancy Sherman, who writes about the military and its values. She's a professor of philosophy at Georgetown University and was the Distinguished Chair of Ethics at the U.S. Navy Academy. She also wrote Stoic Warriors. (3 minutes)

Saturday Extra, with Geraldine Doogue
abc radio national

Since the invasion of Iraq there has been a very live debate around the ethics of this particular conflict. Nancy Sherman explores the moral dilemmas faced by US troops fighting in Iraq. Do these dilemmas differ from those faced by troops in other theatres of war?

Stoics at war
abc radio national

Recent philosophical debate on war has focused on the idea that you don't just have to fight by the rules; you also have to be fighting in a just cause. But does this ignore much of the moral context of a soldier's life. What binds comrades in arms together? What about stress and what about grief, and what does the ancient Roman philosophy of Stoicism have to tell us about it?

The War That Starts When Troops Come Home from War:
Nancy Sherman joins David to discuss the consequences of war on service members, including PTSD, and the psychological impact of drone warfare

Drawing on a background in philosophy as well as in psychoanalysis, Sherman addresses questions of moral responsibility regarding the 2.6 million soldiers now returning home, and shows how society needs to consider issues ranging from disappointment to alienation to traumatization to help veterans find the inner peace they’ve lost during their service on the frontlines.

In this month’s episode, Ryan Cury, a Trade Marketing Manager in the New York office, sat down with Nancy Sherman, author of Afterwar: Healing the Moral Wounds of Our Soldiers, to discuss the painful questions veterans bring home from war, as well as the possibility of inner healing.
