Cultivating Humanity:  A Classical Defense of Reform Nussbaum, M. October 1, 1998

Professor Martha Nussbaum draws on her deep erudition in classical philosophy to rebut Allan Bloom’s conservative agenda for higher education as presented in his The Closing of the American Mind.

Using fascinating case studies from a wide variety of American universities, Nussbaum presents examples of educational reform that are deeply humanistic and prepare students well for life in a globalized, cosmopolitan world.
