Join Interintellect founder Anna Gát in this summer experience and explore the worlds of five great thinkers. One week, five short evening salons, five important intellectuals from the past century. A cosy online retreat for the mind… Come and learn, make friends, build a foundation that can open your knowledge to the world of great ideas!
The writer of some of the most poignant and poetic ethics of our times, Nussbaum might first appear as a good-natured defender of good behaviour to you. But when you zoom in, her thought is filled with surgical examinations of justice, anger, oppression, and the burden of choice.
A highly influential academic philosopher, her ideas live on in the works of younger thinkers, and affect how we talk about consent, education, and equality today.
