660: Martha Nussbaum: Justice for Animals: Our Collective Responsibility
This Sustainable Life
Martha Nussbaum's new book, Justice for Animals: Our Collective Responsibility, looks like it's about animals, but the more I read it, I found it about us, our values, and our behavior. Regular readers and listeners will see the similarity to how I approach the environment in general.Not having eaten meat since 1990 and no animal products at all about ten years, I don't find new materials on human treatment of animals. Candidly, I thought I'd just browse the book. I also don't read much philosophy, which I find too often hard to read.Instead, I kept reading the book until I finished it. I found her writing style accessible, her material heartfelt, and her motivations genuine. She takes a few controversial points, like predation and whether wildlife still exists. I don't agree with each point but value that she made them.I was interested in learning more of the story behind the story, which she shared in this conversation. She approaches how we treat animals from a more theoretical perspective than I do. She traces a history of humans considering animals' rights, contrasting what worked or not with her view.

Le travail des femmes selon Martha Nussbaum (avec Fabienne Brugère)
À plusieurs voix
Dans cet épisode, la philosophe Fabienne Brugère choisit un texte de Martha Nussbaum publié en 1993 et nous parle de famille, de travail des femmes et de théorie de la justice. « Ce qu'introduit Nussbaum dans le cadre d'une théorie féministe de la justice, c'est la possibilité de penser le développement, les capacités, la liberté d'accomplissement, et pas seulement le revenu comme résultat économique du travail. Ne pas être empêché dans ce travail, c'est le fait de pouvoir y projeter des émotions positives, des désirs. C'est justement cela qui dans beaucoup de cas est impossible pour les femmes. » Depuis 1932, Esprit décrypte l’évolution des idées, de la politique, de la société et de la culture, en France et dans le monde. Elle est aujourd’hui l’une des rares revues encore indépendantes, vivant principalement de ses abonnements et ventes de numéros. 🥰 Abonnez-vous dès 1€ : cliquez ici ✉ Recevez notre newsletter hebdomadaire : cliquez ici ❤ Faites un don : cliquez ici Écriture et préparation : Anne Dujin & Rémi Baille Réalisation : Louise André Lectures : Sarah Stern & Rémi Baille Musique originale : Valentin Fernandes
