    In Poetic Justice, Martha Nussbaum argues that literary imagination has a central role to play in political and legal judgments Nussbaum is concerned by a deficit of sympathy and imagination in the political climate of the United States She attributes this problem, at least in part, to the popular influence of schools of thought that separates emotion from rational arguments and devalues the role of the emotions Taking aim at economic utilitarianism and legal models that unduly emphasize deta In Poetic Justice, Martha Nussbaum argues that literary imagination has a central role to play in political and legal judgments Nussbaum is concerned by a deficit of sympathy and imagination in the political climate of the United States She attributes ...

    I enjoyed this book a great deal Usually, I find Nussbaum very hard to follow This book forms a nice corollary to Damasio s work, in that she explores the relationship between emotions and reasoning At times this book seems to be almost apologetic about what it is proposing It goes out of its way to not critique the economic utilitarian view It touches on aradical vision when suggesting that emotions, if freed of self serving tendencies, can serve to set in orde...

    An exploration of why having a literary imagination ie reading books is such an important quality Essentially, she argues that in novels, we can experience the inner thoughts and lives of people who may be very different from ourselves This empathy or compassion can be brought to bear on our rational judgment allowing us a deeper understanding of a situation She speaks specifically of this in a legal context court judges with literary imaginations assessing and sentencing criminals Bu An exploration of why having a literary imagination ie reading books is such an important quality Essentially, she argues that in novels, we can experience the inner thoughts and lives of people who may be very different from ourselves This empathy or compassion can be brought to bear on our rational judgment allowing us a deeper understanding of a situation She speaks specifically of this in a legal context court judges with literary imaginations assessing and sentencing criminals But I see t...

    I d read and taught the first chapter of this book several times, so I wanted to dive in a littledeeply The main idea doesn t change, but Nussbaum does provide several thought provoking defenses of championed literary imagination, including a decent defense of emotions as components of the rational mind It s clear that Nussbaum s experience is primarily in the law It would be worthwhile for others in economics, policy, bureaucracy and the many other...
