Professor Scarry and Jens Bjering discuss philosophy and nuclear war.

Professor Scarry discusses how the prerogative of the United States executive to order a nuclear attack upsets not only traditional checks on the waging of war, but has severely upended U.S. democracy and constitutionality in toto. Elaine Scarry is the Walter M. Cabot Professor of Aesthetics and the General Theory of Value at Harvard University. Jens Bjering is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Southern Denmark .
