One of America’s most influential philosophers, Martha Nussbaum, will deliver two lectures at Colorado State University November 10 in the Lory Student Center Theater. Both talks are free and open to the public, but registration is required.
Nussbaum, who received the Kyoto Prize in 2016 and is the 2017 Jefferson Lecturer in Humanities, will speak on "Aging, Stigma, and Disgust" at 2 p.m. and then on "Anger, Powerlessness, and the Politics of Blame" at 5 p.m.
“Martha Nussbaum is one of the world’s leading philosophers, and her special career focus on ethical issues, very broadly understood and applied, promises to bring to CSU an outstanding addition to our Ethics Colloquium Series,” said Rick Miranda, CSU’s Provost and Executive Vice President. “Personally, I much admire Dr. Nussbaum’s attention to her work having impact not only in the academic realm but also in the daily lives of people living in communities and societies. We are looking forward to her visit very much.”
