2012 Forum for Excellence Series
An Evening with Martha Nussbaum
“Not for Profit: Why Democracy Needs the Humanities”
Martha Nussbaum, the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago, is generally considered one of the world's most prominent moral and legal philosophers. The author of more than a dozen books, she has written at length about theories of justice, the fragility of human goodness, and the intelligence of emotions. She stands for a worldview that pays attention to issues of diversity and of economic and social injustice. Nussbaum earned her B.A. from New York University and her M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard University. Please join us for a thought-provoking discussion on the deeper purpose of a liberal education.
