A Therapeutic Application of Philosophy
The Moral Casualties of War: Understanding the Experience
In this essay I will discuss the therapeutic application of philosophy in treating what I term “the moral casualties of war.” In doing so, I will develop an etiology of moral injury and focus upon the philosophical reasoning and insights that may be applied in an individual or group setting to foster an understanding of the war
experience as the first treatment step in a long and complex journey to healing.
