Jonathan Shay - Why Study Thymos? @ Colgate University
Dr. Jonathan Shay, staff psychiatrist at Department of Veteran Affairs Outpatient Clinic and author of Achilles in Vietnam and Odysseus in America, talks here about Thymos (aka 'the fighting heart") at Colgate University in 2011. The story Beyond PTSD to "Moral Injury" is a good jumping off point to Dr. Jonathan Shay's thoughts which are further explained in this above video. I first heard of Dr. Jonathan Shay and his work at The People's Response to the George W. Bush Presidential Center panel “Truth and Consequences: The Human Cost of War” on Tuesday, April 24, 2013. I can't believe I had only heard about his work until now.
