Broadening Horizons: Critical Reflections on Martha Nussbaum’s Philosophy of Education with Fred Aquino

Pursuing wisdom in the university rarely if ever takes place in isolation. Rather, the process is profoundly social! The practice of gleaning insights from others plays a fundamental role in enabling one to move from a particular set of claims to a more comprehensive understanding of things. This third session (in the series on the Idea of the University) explores the relevance of Martha Nussbaum’s thought for addressing this topic. Readings for this session can be found here.

We believe that learning is a lifelong process and that those of us who teach make a commitment to continue our learning throughout our lives. The Adams Center exists to promote the lifelong learning of Abilene Christian University’s faculty as they strive to integrate their faith and their discipline.
