Martha C. Nussbaum’s central argument in Not for Profit: Why Democracy Needs the Humanities (2010) is that a high quotient of liberal arts education is essential for healthful democracies and human happiness. Education needs to be for something, after all, and this sweeping aim (freedom and joy) would be difficult for most to argue against – least of all those of us who already favor humanities-infused education.
