July 18th Salon — Reading Materials

Hi everyone —

This week’s salon will be a reading discussion based on excerpts from Martha Nussbaum’s Not For Profit: Why Democracy Needs the Humanities. Nussbaum’s book provokes valuable questions around the challenges involved in institutional restructuring and the quantification of degree programs, and how we adequately  (or inadequately) account for “intangibles,” like critical thinking and moral imagination. There are two excerpts of Nussbaum’s book to look at: chapters one and five, and chapter six. The chapters are very short and readable; please click on the chapter links to download the respective PDFs.
