Promotional Information

Martha Nussbaum proposes a kind of feminism that is genuinely international.


'An important book. It presents a rich, nuanced argument that is both intellectually rigorous and attuned to practical dilemmas.' New York Times 'This book is an important contribution to the increasing dialogue between Western and Third World feminists, and should be read by anyone interested in international development.' Susan Okin, Stanford University ' ... important, original, and moving ... Nussbaum's book shows how philosophy can engage life, and improve it.' Joshua Cohen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology 'Women and Human Development is an enormously thought-provoking contribution which is highly recommendable to development academics and practitioners alike.' Jocelyn L. Dejong and Tariq Tell, University of Manchester '... Nussbaum's book has a particular strength. It shows how a philosophical theory can both be informed by experience and aim at transforming experience. Through this book's reading, one realizes the importance of philosophy in global ethics.' Julie Custeau, Philosophy in Review 'This is a challenging book, refreshingly different from most works on international ethics ... an excellent example of practical philosophy.' Australian Journal of Philosophy 'This book is the most extensive and systematic of the many important contributions which Martha Nussbaum has made to feminist philosophy and to the development of the capabilities approach.' Oxford Academic Journals
