No description available, How can higher education today create a community of critical thinkers and searchers for truth that transcends the boundaries of class gender and nation Martha C Nussbaum philosopher and classicist argues that contemporary curricular reform is already producing such citizens of the world in its advocacy of diverse forms of cross cultural studies Drawing on Socrates and the Stoics Nussbaum establishes three core values of liberal education critical self examination the ideal of the world citizen and the development of the narrative imagination Then taking us into classrooms and campuses across the nation including prominent research universities small independent colleges and religious institutions she shows how these values are and in some instances are not being embodied in particular courses She defends such burgeoning subject areas as gender minority and gay studies against charges of moral relativism and low standards and underscores their dynamic and fundamental contribution to critical reasoning and world citizenship, What is it to grieve for the death of a parent More literary and experiential than other philosopical works on emotion Upheavals of Thought will engage the reader who has ever stopped to ask that question Emotions such as grief fear anger and love seem to be alien forces that disturb our thoughts and plans Yet they also embody some of our deepest thoughts about the importance of the people we love about the vulnerability of our bodies and our plans to events beyond our control In this wide ranging book based on her Gifford Lectures philosopher Martha Nussbaum draws on philosophy psychology anthropology music and literature to illuminate the role emotions play in our thoughts about important goals Starting with an account of her own mother s death she argues that emotions are intelligent appraisals of a world that we do not control in the light of our own most significant goals and plans She then investigates the implications of this idea for normative issues analyzing the role of compassion in private and public reasoning and the attempts of authors both philosophical and literary to purify or reform the emotion of erotic love Ultimately she illuminates the structure of emotions and argues that once we understand the complex intelligence of emotions we will also have new reasons to value works of literature as sources of ethical education Martha C Nussbaum is Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics University of Chicago appointed in Law School Philosophy department and Divinity School and an Associate in Classics A leading scholar in ancient Greek ethics aesthetics and literature her previous books include The Fragility of Goodness Cambridge Loves s Knowledge Oxford Poetic Justice Beacon Press The Therapy of Desire Princeton Cultivating Humanity Harvard and Sex and Social Justice Oxford Her reviews have appeared in the New York Times Boston Globe New York Review of Books and New Republic, This book is a study of ancient views about moral luck It examines the fundamental ethical problem that many of the valued constituents of a well lived life are vulnerable to factors outside a person s control and asks how this affects our appraisal of persons and their lives The Greeks made a profound contribution to these questions yet neither the problems nor the Greek views of them have received the attention they deserve This updated edition contains a new preface
