Nolen Gertz studied Philosophy at the New School for Social Research, working on the relationship between how wars are justified and the trauma experienced by combatants. This led to the publication of his book, The Philosophy of War and Exile (Palgrave 2014), which provides a new philosophy of PTSD, viewing the trauma of war as the result of our fundamental trust in the world rather than only what happens on the battlefield.
