Newman and Nussbaum on the Purpose of Higher Education

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademic

Abstract

In this paper, we explore some of the thought of John Henry Cardinal Newman and Martha Nussbaum on the purpose and value of higher education and the humanities in particular. Newman focuses on what the humanities contribute to the university (Section 2); Nussbaum focuses on what the humanities contribute to society (Section 3). After having sketched their views, we consider some similarities and differences (Section 4). We close with a brief conclusion (Section 5).
