Phil Klay, U.S. Marine Corps veteran and author of Redeployment—short listed for the National Book Award for fiction—and Nancy Sherman, philosopher and author of The Untold War, join Simon Critchley to explore the notion of nostos, the Greek word for homecoming, to better understand the psychological truths faced by servicemen and women returning from war today.
