Mellon Humanities Lecture: Anger and Revolutionary Justice

University of Chicago Professor of Law Martha Nussbaum will offer a philosophical analysis of anger, and why it is of dubious value in life and the law, and then use that analysis to reflect in the role of non-anger in the work of Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela. Martha Nussbaum is the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics, appointed in the Law School and Philosophy Department. She is an Associate in the Classics Department, the Divinity School, and the Political Science Department, a Member of the Committee on Southern Asian Studies, and a Board Member of the Human Rights Program.
