Should philosophy be used to treat PTSD? Hear the debate on the Daily Commute free podcast http://t.co/wTnjnmwC4rI was very fortunate to have the opportunity to discuss my book The Philosophy of War and Exile with Dan Damon on the BBC World Update program. John Higgins, a friend and veteran who helped me immensely while I was writing the book by both sharing his personal experiences and by reading chapters, was also interviewed.

Here are some of the things that I brought up during the interview that didn't get included in what was aired:
- My work in establishing a Student Veteran Center at Delta College
- The importance of Simone Weil's The Iliad, or Poem of Force for my own analyses of the experience of war
