Afterwar: Contemporary and Ancient Lessons on Moral Injury and Healing
Much respected broadcaster, writer and critic Alan Saunders passed away in June 2012. Alan was a gifted communicator with a talent for explaining complex ideas to a wide audience. His engaging ABC RN programs specialised in design, food, and philosophy, among other themes of the examined life.
ABC RN, in association with the Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP), has established an annual lecture in recognition of Alan’s enduring work.
This year, the Alan Saunders Memorial Lecture will be delivered by eminent moral philosopher Nancy Sherman.
The Lecture will draw on Nancy's recent book, Afterwar, to outline a philosophical view of moral injury and the emotions expressive of it.
Nancy Sherman is a Distinguished University Professor and Professor of Philosophy at Georgetown University. She has affiliate appointments at the Centre on National Security and the Law at Georgetown University Law Centre and at Georgetown’s Kennedy Institute of Ethics and was the inaugural Distinguished Chair in Ethics at the United States Naval Academy.
