Not for Profit In This Short And Powerful Book, Celebrated Philosopher Martha Nussbaum Makes A Passionate Case For The Importance Of The Liberal Arts At All Levels Of Education Historically, The Humanities Have Been Central To Education Because They Have Rightly Been Seen As Essential For Creating Competent Democratic Citizens But Recently, Nussbaum Argues, Thinking About The Aims Of Education Has Gone Disturbingly Awry Both In The United States And Abroad Anxiously Focused On National Economic Growth, We Increasingly Treat Education As Though Its Primary Goal Were To Teach Students To Be Economically Productive Rather Than To Think Critically And Become Knowledgeable And Empathetic Citizens This Shortsighted Focus On Profitable Skills Has Eroded Our Ability To Criticize Authority, Reduced Our Sympathy With The Marginalized And Different, And Damaged Our Competence To Deal With Complex Global Problems And The Loss Of These Basic Capacities Jeopardizes The Health Of Democracies And The Hope Of A Decent World In Response To This Dire Situation, 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 Drawing On The Stories Of Troubling And Hopeful Educational Developments From Around The World, Nussbaum Offers A Manifesto That Should Be A Rallying Cry For Anyone Who Cares About The Deepest Purposes Of Education.
