presents

The Nichols Professorship Inaugural Lecture

by

Martha Nussbaum

Ernst Freund Professor of Law and Ethics
University of Chicago

7:00 p.m., Wednesday, December 1, 1999
Humanities Instructional Building Lecture Hall (HIB 100) discussing

"Local and Global Duties: Cicero's Problematic Legacy."


     Drawing upon the writings of the ancient Roman philosopher, Cicero, yet also questioning that highly influential legacy, Martha Nussbaum tackles these difficult issues concering individual and group responsibilities. As a philosopher, Professor Nussbaum never loses sight of the urgency of addressing such questions concerning international obligations in our own increasingly cosmpolitan world. One of Professor Nussbaum's many books, Cultivating Humanity: A Classical Defense of Reform in Liberal Eduaction (1997), helped inspire the creation of the Nichols Chair in Humanities and the Public Sphere in the School of Humanities at the University of California, Irvine.

Respondents: Liisa Malkki, Professor of Anthropology
Patrick Sinclair, Professor of Classics.
