Description

Humanities Day Keynote Address
Presenters: Martha C. Nussbaum

In these days of horrible mistreatment of animals, the poaching of elephants and rhinos, and the devastation of their natural habitat through climate change, we need both an ethical revolution and new laws to protect animals. But how do we create a wholly new approach to protect diverse animals? This session examines an approach that the presenter has long put forward, known as the Capabilities Approach, that we share the world with other species, and that what they are able to do and be matters greatly to all of us.

Free and open to the public. Registration required: https://humanitiesday.uchicago.edu
