    Merleau-Ponty and a Phenomenology of Ptsd: Hidden Ghosts of Traumatic Memory.MaryCatherine McDonald - 2019 - Lexington Books.
    Merleau-Ponty and a Phenomenology of PTSD begins from the premise that trauma can be better treated if it is better understood. To that end, this book builds a prismatic account of trauma, encompassing neuroscience, psychology, and phenomenology in order to establish that trauma is an embodied, adaptive response to a world without meaning.

    Hysterical Girls: Combat Trauma as a Feminist Issue.MaryCatherine McDonald - 2018 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 11 (1):3-21.
    In the United States, combat veterans are overwhelmingly male. It was not until 2013 that the ban preventing women from serving in combat was removed by then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, and not until 2016 that women could choose to enlist in Army Ranger School or become a Navy SEAL. Currently, only 6 percent of the veteran population in the United States is female. Why, then, choose combat trauma to show the ways in which our understanding of PTSD is problematically (...)

    Haunted by a Different Ghost: Re-Thinking Moral Injury.MaryCatherine McDonald - 2017 - Essays in Philosophy 18 (2):207-222.
    Coined by Jonathan Shay, a clinician who works with combat veterans, the term ‘moral injury’ refers to an injury that occurs when one’s moral beliefs are betrayed. Shay developed the term to capture the shame and guilt of veterans he saw in his clinical practice. Since then, debates about moral injury have centered around the ‘what’ and the ‘who’ of moral injury. Clinicians universally acknowledge the challenge of treating moral injuries. I will argue that this is in part because there (...)

    Trauma, Embodiment, and Narrative.MaryCatherine McDonald - 2012 - Idealistic Studies 42 (2-3):247-263.
    We do not always survive trauma. Elie Wiesel said of Primo Levi, a holocaust survivor who committed suicide at age sixty-seven, “[he] died at Auschwitz forty years earlier.” Though Levi physically survived the holocaust, psychically he did not. And yet, there are countless stories of incredible triumph over trauma. What makes survival possible? What seems to separate those who recover from those who do not—at least in part—is the capacity and opportunity for adaptation. Adaptation is the phenomenon whereby the subject (...)
