Martin L. Cook, the Admiral James Bond Stockdale Professor of Professional Military Ethics at the United States Naval War College, will be the speaker for the 15th annual James Bond Stockdale Leadership Symposium at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25 in the University of San Diego Shiley Theatre.

Cook will discuss “Reflections on the Stockdale Legacy.”  He serves as editor of The Journal of Military Ethics and as a member of the editorial board of Parameters, the scholarly journal of the United States Army War College. He is the author of The Moral Warrior: Ethics and Service in the U.S. Military, published in 2003 by the State University of New York Press. A second collection of essays for SUNY is in progress. Before joining the Naval War College, he served as professor of philosophy and deputy department head in the Department of Philosophy at the U.S. Air Force Academy. He has lectured on topics of military ethics in the United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore and Norway.

The purpose of the Stockdale Symposium is to help attendees to understand some of the difficult moral and ethical issues facing military officers today. The late Admiral Stockdale, a Medal of Honor recipient, bore witness to the importance of studying, understanding and applying ethical principles to one’s profession and the conduct of one’s life.

USD’s School of Leadership and Education Sciences and the NROTC San Diego Battalion are sponsors of the symposium. The event is free and open to the public. Prior to the lecture in Shiley Theatre, there will be a public reception from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. in the School of Education, also located on the west end of the USD campus.
