Not For Profit: Why Democracy Needs the Humanities (The Public Square) by Martha C. Nussbaum
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0691140642 | English | 178 pages | PDF | 0.70 MB

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.
