Warren, an interior designer and homemaker; during her teenage

years, Nussbaum attended the Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr. She
described her upbringing as "East Coast WASP elite...very sterile,
very preoccupied with money and status".[2] She would later credit
her impatience with "mandarin philosophers" as the "repudiation of
my own aristocratic upbringing. I don't like anything that sets itself
up as an in-group or an elite, whether it is the Bloomsbury group or

She studied theatre and classics at New York University, getting a

BA in 1969, and gradually moved to philosophy while at Harvard
University, where she received an MA in 1972 and a PhD in 1975,
studying under G. E. L. Owen. This period also saw her marriage to
Alan Nussbaum (divorced in 1987), her conversion to Judaism, and
the birth of her daughter Rachel.

Nussbaum's interest in Judaism has continued and deepened: on

August 16, 2008 she became a bat mitzvah in a service at Temple K.
A. M. Isaiah Israel in Chicago's Hyde Park, chanting from the Nussbaum in 2010
Parashah Va-etchanan and the Haftarah Nahamu, and delivering a
D'var Torah about the connection between genuine, non-narcissistic
consolation and the pursuit of global justice.[4]

During her studies at Harvard, Nussbaum claims she encountered a tremendous amount of discrimination,
including sexual harassment, and problems getting childcare for her daughter.[5] When she became the first
woman to hold the Junior Fellowship at Harvard, Nussbaum received a congratulatory note from a
"prestigious classicist" who suggested that since "female fellowess" was an awkward name, she should be
called hetaira, for in Greece these educated courtesans were the only women who participated in
philosophical symposia.[6]

In the 1970s and early 1980 she taught philosophy and classics at Harvard, where she was denied tenure by
the Classics Department in 1982.[3] Nussbaum then moved to Brown University, where she taught until
1994 when she joined the University of Chicago Law School faculty. Her 1986 book The Fragility of
Goodness, on ancient Greek ethics and Greek tragedy, made her a well-known figure throughout the
humanities. More recent work (Frontiers of Justice) establishes Nussbaum as a theorist of global justice.

Nussbaum's work on capabilities has often focused on the unequal freedoms and opportunities of women,
and she has developed a distinctive type of feminism, drawing inspiration from the liberal tradition, but
emphasizing that liberalism, at its best, entails radical rethinking of gender relations and relations within the

Nussbaum's other major area of philosophical work is the emotions. She has defended a neo-Stoic account
of emotions that holds that they are appraisals that ascribe to things and persons, outside the agent's own
control, great significance for the person's own flourishing. On this basis she has proposed analyses of grief,
compassion, and love,[8] and, in a later book, of disgust and shame.[9]

Nussbaum has engaged in many spirited debates with other intellectuals, in her academic writings as well as
in the pages of semi-popular magazines and book reviews and, in one instance, when testifying as an expert
witness in court. She testified in the Colorado bench trial for Romer v. Evans, arguing against the claim that
the history of philosophy provides the state with a "compelling interest" in favor of a law denying gays and
lesbians the right to seek passage of local non-discrimination laws. A portion of this testimony, dealing with
the potential meanings of the term tolmma in Plato's work, was the subject of controversy, and was called

"Platonic Love and Colorado Law".[12] Nussbaum used multiple references from Plato's Symposium and his
interactions with Socrates as evidence for her argument. The debate continued with a reply by one of her
sternest critics, Robert P. George.[13] Nussbaum has criticized Noam Chomsky as being among the leftist
intellectuals who hold the belief that "one should not criticize ones friends, that solidarity is more important
than ethical correctness". She suggests that one can "trace this line to an old Marxist contempt for bourgeois
ethics, but it is loathsome whatever its provenance".[14] Among the people whose books she has reviewed
critically are Allan Bloom,[15] Harvey Mansfield,[16] and Judith Butler.[17] Her more serious and academic
debates have been with figures such as John Rawls, Richard Posner, and Susan Moller Okin.[18][19][20][21]

Nussbaum is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (elected 1988) and the American
Philosophical Society. In 2008 she was elected a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy. She is a
Founding President and Past President of the Human Development and Capability Association and a Past
President of the American Philosophical Association, Central Division. She won the Kyoto Prize in 2015,
and in 2017 the National Endowment for the Humanities selected Nussbaum to deliver the Jefferson
Lecture, the U.S. federal government's highest honor for achievement in the humanities; her lecture, to be
delivered in May 2017, will be entitled "Powerlessness and the Politics of Blame."[22]

Major works
The Fragility of Goodness: Luck and Ethics in Greek Tragedy and Philosophy

The Fragility of Goodness[23] confronts the ethical dilemma that individuals strongly committed to justice
are nevertheless vulnerable to external factors that may deeply compromise or even negate their human
flourishing. Discussing literary as well as philosophical texts, Nussbaum seeks to determine the extent to
which reason may enable self-sufficiency. She eventually rejects the Platonic notion that human goodness
can fully protect against peril, siding with the tragic playwrights and Aristotle in treating the
acknowledgment of vulnerability as a key to realizing the human good.

Her interpretation of Plato's Symposium in particular drew considerable attention. Under Nussbaum's
consciousness of vulnerability, the re-entrance of Alcibiades at the end of the dialogue undermines Diotima's
account of the ladder of love in its ascent to the non-physical realm of the forms. Alcibiades's presence
deflects attention back to physical beauty, sexual passions, and bodily limitations, hence highlighting human

Fragility made Nussbaum famous throughout the humanities. It garnered wide praise in academic reviews,
[24][25] and even drew acclaim in the popular media.[26] Camille Paglia credited Fragility with matching "the

highest academic standards" of the twentieth century,[27] and The Times Higher Education called it "a
supremely scholarly work".[28] Nussbaum's fame extended her influence beyond print and into television
programs like PBS's Bill Moyers.[29]

Cultivating Humanity

Cultivating Humanity[30] appeals to classical Greek texts as a basis for defense and reform of the liberal
education. Noting the Greek cynic philosopher Diogenes' aspiration to transcend "local origins and group
memberships" in favor of becoming "a citizen of the world", Nussbaum traces the development of this idea
through the Stoics, Cicero, and eventually modern liberalism of Adam Smith and Immanuel Kant.
Nussbaum champions multiculturalism in the context of ethical universalism, defends scholarly inquiry into
race, gender, and human sexuality, and further develops the role of literature as narrative imagination into
ethical questions.

Jacques Derrida as "simply not worth studying" and labels his analysis of Chinese culture "pernicious" and
without "evidence of serious study". More broadly, Nussbaum criticized Michel Foucault for his "historical
incompleteness and lack of conceptual clarity", but nevertheless singled him out for providing "the only
truly important work to have entered philosophy under the banner of 'postmodernism.'"[31] Nussbaum is
even more critical of figures like Allan Bloom, Roger Kimball, and George Will for what she considers their
"shaky" knowledge of non-Western cultures and inaccurate caricatures of today's humanities departments.

The New York Times praised Cultivating Humanity as "a passionate, closely argued defense of
multiculturalism" and hailed it as "a formidable, perhaps definitive defense of diversity on American
campuses".[32] Nussbaum was the 2002 recipient of the University of Louisville Grawmeyer Award in

Sex and Social Justice

Sex and Social Justice sets out to demonstrate that sex and sexuality are morally irrelevant distinctions that
have been artificially enforced as sources of social hierarchy; thus, feminism and social justice have
common concerns. Rebutting anti-universalist objections, Nussbaum proposes functional freedoms, or
central human capabilities, as a rubric of social justice.[33]

Nussbaum discusses at length the feminist critiques of liberalism itself, including the charge advanced by
Alison Jaggar that liberalism demands ethical egoism. Nussbaum notes that liberalism emphasizes respect
for others as individuals, and further argues that Jaggar has elided the distinction between individualism and
self-sufficiency. Nussbaum accepts Catharine MacKinnon's critique of abstract liberalism, assimilating the
salience of history and context of group hierarchy and subordination, but concludes that this appeal is rooted
in liberalism rather than a critique of it.[34]

Nussbaum condemns the practice of female genital mutilation, citing deprivation of normative human
functioning in its risks to health, impact on sexual functioning, violations of dignity, and conditions of
non-autonomy. Emphasizing that female genital mutilation is carried out by brute force, its irreversibility, its
non-consensual nature, and its links to customs of male domination, Nussbaum urges feminists to confront
female genital mutilation as an issue of injustice.[35]

Nussbaum also refines the concept of "objectification", as originally advanced by Catharine MacKinnon and
Andrea Dworkin. Nussbaum defines the idea of treating as an object with seven qualities: instrumentality,
denial of autonomy, inertness, fungibility, violability, ownership, and denial of subjectivity. Her
characterization of pornography as a tool of objectification puts Nussbaum at odds with sex-positive
feminism. At the same time, Nussbaum argues in support of the legalization of prostitution, a position she
reiterated in a 2008 essay following the Spitzer scandal, writing: "The idea that we ought to penalize women
with few choices by removing one of the ones they do have is grotesque."[36]

Sex and Social Justice was lauded by critics in the press. Salon declared: "She shows brilliantly how sex is
used to deny some peoplei.e., women and gay mensocial justice."[37] The New York Times praised the
work as "elegantly written and carefully argued".[38] Kathryn Trevenen praised Nussbaum's effort to shift
feminist concerns toward interconnected transnational efforts, and for explicating a set of universal
guidelines to structure an agenda of social justice.[39] Patrick Hopkins singled out for praise Nussbaum's
"masterful" chapter on sexual objectification.[40] Radical feminist Andrea Dworkin faulted Nussbaum for
"consistent over-intellectualisation of emotion, which has the inevitable consequence of mistaking suffering
for cruelty".[41]

including two emotionsshame and disgustas legitimate bases for legal judgments. Nussbaum argues
that individuals tend to repudiate their bodily imperfection or animality through the projection of fears about
contamination. This cognitive response is in itself irrational, because we cannot transcend the animality of
our bodies. Noting how projective disgust has wrongly justified group subordination (mainly of women,
Jews, and homosexuals), Nussbaum ultimately discards disgust as a reliable basis of judgment.

Turning to shame, Nussbaum argues that shame takes too broad a target, attempting to inculcate humiliation
on a scope that is too intrusive and limiting on human freedom. Nussbaum sides with John Stuart Mill in
narrowing legal concern to acts that cause a distinct and assignable harm.

In an interview with Reason magazine, Nussbaum elaborated: "Disgust and shame are inherently
hierarchical; they set up ranks and orders of human beings. They are also inherently connected with
restrictions on liberty in areas of non-harmful conduct. For both of these reasons, I believe, anyone who
cherishes the key democratic values of equality and liberty should be deeply suspicious of the appeal to
those emotions in the context of law and public policy."[43]

Nussbaum's work was received with wide praise. The Boston Globe called her argument "characteristically
lucid" and hailed her as "America's most prominent philosopher of public life".[44] Her reviews in national
newspapers and magazines garnered unanimous praise.[45] In academic circles, Stefanie A. Lindquist of
Vanderbilt University lauded Nussbaum's analysis as a "remarkably wide ranging and nuanced treatise on
the interplay between emotions and law".[46]

A prominent exception was Roger Kimball's review published in The New Criterion,[47] in which he
accused Nussbaum of "fabricating" the renewed prevalence of shame and disgust in public discussions and
says she intends to "undermine the inherited moral wisdom of millennia". He rebukes her for "contempt for
the opinions of ordinary people" and ultimately accuses Nussbaum herself of "hiding from humanity".

Nussbaum has recently drawn on and extended her work on disgust to produce a new analysis of the legal
issues regarding sexual orientation and same-sex conduct. Her book From Disgust to Humanity: Sexual
Orientation and the Constitution was published by Oxford University Press in 2009, as part of their
"Inalienable Rights" series, edited by Geoffrey Stone.[48]

From Disgust to Humanity: Sexual Orientation and Constitutional Law

In the 2010 book From Disgust to Humanity: Sexual Orientation and Constitutional Law Martha Nussbaum
analyzes the role that disgust plays in law and public debate in the United States.[49] The book primarily
analyzes constitutional legal issues facing gay and lesbian Americans but also analyzes issues such as
anti-miscegenation statutes, segregation, antisemitism and the caste system in India as part of its broader
thesis regarding the "politics of disgust".

Nussbaum posits that the fundamental motivations of those advocating legal restrictions against gay and
lesbian Americans is a "politics of disgust". These legal restrictions include blocking sexual orientation
being protected under anti-discrimination laws (See: Romer v. Evans), sodomy laws against consenting
adults (See: Lawrence v. Texas), constitutional bans against same-sex marriage (See: California Proposition
8 (2008)), over-strict regulation of gay bathhouses, and bans on sex in public parks and public restrooms.[50]
Nussbaum also argues that legal bans on polygamy and certain forms of incestuous (e.g. brother-sister)
marriage partake of the politics of disgust and should be overturned.[51]

She identifies the "politics of disgust" closely with Lord Devlin and his famous opposition to the Wolfenden
report that recommended decriminalizing private consensual homosexual acts on the basis that those things
would "disgust the average man". To Devlin, the mere fact some people or act may produce popular
emotional reactions of disgust provides an appropriate guide for legislating. She also identifies the 'wisdom

disgust "in crucial cases ... repugnance is the emotional expression of deep wisdom, beyond reason's power
fully to articulate it".

Nussbaum goes on to explicitly oppose the concept of a disgust-based morality as an appropriate guide for
legislating. Nussbaum notes that popular disgust has been used throughout history as a justification for
persecution. Drawing upon her earlier work on the relationship between disgust and shame, Nussbaum notes
that at various times, racism, antisemitism, and sexism, have all been driven by popular revulsion.[52]

In place of this "politics of disgust", Nussbaum argues for the harm principle from John Stuart Mill as the
proper basis for limiting individual liberties. Nussbaum argues the harm principle, which supports the legal
ideas of consent, the age of majority, and privacy, protects citizens while the "politics of disgust" is merely
an unreliable emotional reaction with no inherent wisdom. Furthermore, Nussbaum argues this "politics of
disgust" has denied and continues to deny citizens humanity and equality before the law on no rational
grounds and causes palpable social harms to the groups affected.

From Disgust to Humanity earned acclaim in the United States,[53][54][55][56] and prompted interviews in the
New York Times and other magazines.[57][58] One conservative magazine, The American Spectator, offered a
dissenting view, writing: "[H]er account of the 'politics of disgust' lacks coherence, and 'the politics of
humanity' betrays itself by not treating more sympathetically those opposed to the gay rights movement."
The article also argues that the book is marred by factual errors and inconsistencies.[59]
