Sex & social justice by Martha C Nussbaum( )

47 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 3,432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Growing out of Nussbaum's years of work with an international development agency connected with the United Nations, this collection charts a feminism that is deeply concerned with the urgent needs of women who live in hunger and illiteracy, or under unequal legal systems. Offering an internationalism informed by development economics and empirical detail, many essays take their start from the experiences of women in developing countries. Nussbaum argues for a universal account of human capacity and need, while emphasizing the essential role of knowledge of local circumstance. Further chapters take on the pursuit of social justice in the sexual sphere, exploring the issue of equal rights for lesbians and gay men."--Jacket
Hiding from humanity : disgust, shame, and the law by Martha C Nussbaum( )

33 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 3,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martha Nussbaum elaborates a critique of the role that shame & disgust play in our individual & social lives &, in particular, in the law. She argues that we should be wary of these emotions because both are associated in troubling ways with a desire to hide from our humanity
The offensive Internet : speech, privacy, and reputation by Saul Levmore( )

27 editions published between 2010 and 2022 in English and held by 2,955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Internet has been romanticized as a zone of freedom. The alluring combination of sophisticated technology with low barriers to entry and instantaneous outreach to millions of users has mesmerized libertarians and communitarians alike. Lawmakers have joined the celebration, passing the Communications Decency Act, which enables Internet Service Providers to allow unregulated discourse without danger of liability, all in the name of enhancing freedom of speech. But an unregulated Internet is a breeding ground for offensive conduct. At last we have a book that begins to focus on abuses made possible by anonymity, freedom from liability, and lack of oversight. The distinguished scholars assembled in this volume, drawn from law and philosophy, connect the absence of legal oversight with harassment and discrimination. Questioning the simplistic notion that abusive speech and mobocracy are the inevitable outcomes of new technology, they argue that current misuse is the outgrowth of social, technological, and legal choices. Seeing this clearly will help us to be better informed about our options. In a field still dominated by a frontier perspective, this book has the potential to be a real game changer. Armed with example after example of harassment in Internet chat rooms, blogs, and forums, the authors detail some of the vile and hateful speech that the current combination of law and technology has bred. The facts are then treated to analysis and policy prescriptions. Read this book and you will never again see the Internet through rose-colored glasses"--Jacket
Love's knowledge : essays on philosophy and literature by Martha C Nussbaum( )

35 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 2,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together Nussbaum's published papers on the relationship between literature and philosophy, especially moral philosophy. The papers, many of them previously inaccessible to non-specialist readers, deal with such fundamental issues as the relationship between style and content in the exploration of ethical issues; the nature of ethical attention and ethical knowledge and their relationship to written forms and styles; and the role of the emotions in deliberation and self-knowledge. Nussbaum investigates and defends a conception of ethical understanding which involves emotiona
Animal rights : current debates and new directions by Cass R Sunstein( )

38 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 2,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Millions of people live with cats, dogs, and other pets, which they treat as members of their families. But through their daily behavior, people who love those pets, and greatly care about their welfare, help ensure short and painful lives for millions, even billions of animals that cannoteasily be distinguished from dogs and cats. Today, the overwhelming percentage of animals with whom Westerners interact are raised for food. Countless animals endure lives of relentless misery and die often torturous deaths. The use of animals by human beings, often for important human purposes, has forced uncomfortable questions to center stage: Should people change their behavior? Should the law promote animal welfare? Should animals have legal rights? Should animals continue to be counted as "property"? Whatreforms make sense?
The new religious intolerance : overcoming the politics of fear in an anxious age by Martha C Nussbaum( Book )

32 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and French and held by 2,650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What impulse prompted some newspapers to attribute the murder of 77 Norwegians to Islamic extremists, until it became evident that a right-wing Norwegian terrorist was the perpetrator? Why did Switzerland, a country of four minarets, vote to ban those structures? How did a proposed Muslim cultural center in lower Manhattan ignite a fevered political debate across the United States? In The New Religious Intolerance, Martha C. Nussbaum surveys such developments and identifies the fear behind these reactions. Drawing inspiration from philosophy, history, and literature, she suggests a route past this limiting response and toward a more equitable, imaginative, and free society."--Jacket
Upheavals of thought : the intelligence of emotions by Martha C Nussbaum( Book )

46 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 2,626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martha C. Nussbaum presents a powerful argument for treating emotions not as alien forces but as highly discriminating responses to what is of value and importance. Beginning from an intensely personal experience of her own, the grief felt at the death of her mother, she explores and illuminates the structure of a wide range of emotions, in particular, compassion and love. She shows that there can be no adequate ethical theory without an adequate theory of the emotions, and that this involves understanding their cultural sources, their history in infancy and childhood, and their sometimes unpredictable and disorderly operations in our daily lives
Women and human development : the capabilities approach by Martha Craven Nussbaum( )

47 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 2,588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proposing a new kind of feminism that is genuinely international, Martha Nussbaum argues for an ethical underpinning to all thought about development planning and public policy, and dramatically moves beyond the abstractions of economists and philosophers to embed thought about justice in the concrete reality of the struggles of poor women. In this book, Nussbaum argues that international political and economic thought must be sensitive to gender difference as a problem of justice, and that feminist thought must begin to focus on the problems of women in the third world. Taking as her point of departure the predicament of poor women in India, she shows how philosophy should undergird basic constitutional principles that should be respected and implemented by all governments, and used as a comparative measure of quality of life across nations. Nussbaum concludes by calling for a new international focus to feminism, and shows through concrete detail how philosophical arguments about justice really do connect with the practical concerns of public policy
Frontiers of justice : disability, nationality, species membership by Martha Craven Nussbaum( )

43 editions published between 2006 and 2022 in English and German and held by 2,545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of the social contract is one of the most powerful approaches to social justice in the Western tradition. Exploring the limitations of the social contract, Nussbaum devises an alternative theory based on the idea of capabilities as an approach to social co-operation
Creating capabilities : the human development approach by Martha Craven Nussbaum( )

36 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and Korean and held by 2,480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a primer on the "Capabilities Approach," Nussbaum's innovative model for assessing human progress.

Sex, preference, and family : essays on law and nature by David M Estlund( )

34 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 2,467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sex, Preference, and Family brings together seventeen eminent philosophers and legal scholars who offer illuminating and often provocative commentary on sexuality (including sexual behavior, sexual orientation, and the role of pornography in shaping sexuality), on the family (including both same-sex and single-parent families), and on the proper role of law in these areas. The essayists are all fiercely independent thinkers and offer intriguing and controversial proposals
On nineteen eighty-four : Orwell and our future by Abbott Gleason( )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 2,373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Orwell's nineteen Eighty-Fours among the most widely read books in the world. For more than 50 years, it has been regarded as a morality tale for the possible future of modern society, a future involving nothing less than extinction of humanity itself. Does nineteeFour remainourremain relevant in our new century? The editors of this book assembled a distinguished group of philosophers, literary specialists, political commentators, historians, and lawyers and asked them to take a wide-ranging and uninhibited look at that question. The editors deliberately avoided Orwell scholars in an effort to call forth a fresh and diverse range of responses to the major work of one of the most durable literary figures among twentieth-century EAs nineteenters. AsNineteen Eighty-Fourprotagonist Winston Smith has admirers on the right, in the center, and on the left, the contributors similarly represent a wide range of political, literary, and moral viewpoints. The Cold War that has so often been linked to Orwell's novel ended with more of a whimper than a bang, but most of the issues of concern to him remain alive in some form today: censorship, scientific surveillance, power worship, the autonomy of art, the meaning of democracy, relations between men and women, and many others. The contributors bring a variety of insightful and contemporary perspectives to bear on these questions

Not for profit : why democracy needs the humanities by Martha Craven Nussbaum( Book )

47 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 2,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philosopher Martha Nussbaum makes a passionate case for the importance of the liberal arts at all levels of education. Nussbaum argues that we must resist efforts to reduce education to a tool of the gross national product. Rather, we must work to reconnect education to the humanities in order to give students the capacity to be true democratic citizens of their countries and the world"--Jacket
Sexual orientation & human rights in American religious discourse by Martha Craven Nussbaum( )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fragility of goodness : luck and ethics in Greek tragedy and philosophy by Martha C Nussbaum( Book )

100 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 book thus recovers a central dimension of Greek thought and addresses major issues in contemporary ethical theory. One of its most original aspects is its interrelated treatment of both literary and philosophical texts. The Fragility of Goodness has proven to be important reading for philosophers and classicists, and its non-technical style makes it accessible to any educated person interested in the difficult problems it tackles. This edition, first published in 2001, features a preface by Martha Nussbaum
The clash within : democracy, religious violence, and India's future by Martha C Nussbaum( )

28 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 2,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While America is focused on religious militancy and terrorism in the Middle East, democracy has been under siege from religious extremism in another critical part of the world. As Martha Nussbaum reveals in this look at India today, the forces of the Hindu right pose a disturbing threat to its democratic traditions and secular state."--Jacket
Women, culture, and development : a study of human capabilities by Martha Nussbaum( )

39 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like its predecessor, The Quality of Life, this volume encourages the reader to think critically about the central fundamental concepts used in development economics and suggests major criticisms of current economic approaches from that fundamental viewpoint
Liberty of conscience : in defense of America's tradition of religious equality by Martha Craven Nussbaum( Book )

27 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 1,903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The founders of the United States overcame religious intolerance in favor of a constitutional order dedicated to fair treatment for people's deeply held conscientious beliefs. This respect for religious difference, scholar Nussbaum writes, formed our democracy. Yet today there are signs that this legacy is misunderstood. The prominence of a particular type of Christianity in our public life suggests the unequal worth of citizens who hold different religious beliefs, or no beliefs. Others, meanwhile, seek to curtail the influence of religion in public life in a way that is itself unbalanced and unfair. Such partisan efforts, Nussbaum argues, violate the spirit of our Constitution. This is a historical and conceptual study of the American tradition of religious freedom. Weaving together political history, philosophical ideas, and key constitutional cases, it is a chronicle of an ideal of equality that has always been central to our history but is now in danger.--From publisher description
