Joseph Wiinikka-Lydon | Violence and the Varieties of Moral Harm

2. 5. 2018 | 13:15 - 14:45

A key new word to describe the experience of violence is moral injury. Moral injury articulates the feeling that one has committed a serious moral transgression in a context of violence. It has mostly been used to refer to the experience of soldiers, U.S. soldiers in particular, thus ignoring the many persons and institutions that war affects. Using a case study, I sketch different forms of harm, from the individual to the societal, to begin to address the complex ways that war can affect moral subjectivity and intersubjectivity. I argue that this complexity requires a more nuanced understanding of the ways ecologies of violence, such as war, transform moral subjectivity, intersubjectivity, and the futures of communities, and so, new ways of understanding moral injury.
