Baker Lab, 135
259 East Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

The Program on Ethics and Public Life presents a talk by Nancy Sherman, University Professor of Philosophy at Georgetown University, Public Policy Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and former Distinguished Chair in Ethics at the U.S. Naval Academy.

Professor Sherman will speak on issues of interest to members of the military and their families; to faculty and students in philosophy, psychology, sociology, American studies, peace studies, government, literature, and public policy; to counselors and psychotherapists dealing with post-traumatic stress among veterans; and to all citizens of countries served by a military.

Her most recent book, The Untold War: Inside the Hearts, Minds and Souls of Our Soldiers (2010), continues the unique combination of philosophical and psychological inquiry and engagement with the experiences of people in the military of Stoic Warriors: The Ancient Philosophy Behind the Military Mind (2007).

This event, to be held Wed., Oct. 12 at 4:30 pm in 135 Baker Lab (East Ave., diagonally across from the north end of Goldwin Smith Hall), is sponsored by the Program on Ethics and Public Life, with support from the Irving "Chips" Cantor fund and a gift from the Cornell Class of '65.
