In this short and powerful book, celebrated philosopher Martha Nussbaum makes a passionate case for the importance of the liberal arts at all levels of education. Historically, the humanities have been central to education because they have been seen as essential for creating competent democratic citizens. But recently, Nussbaum argues, thinking about the aims of education has gone disturbingly awry in the United States and abroad. We increasingly treat education as though its primary goal were to teach students to be economically productive rather than to think critically and become knowledgeable, productive, and empathetic individuals. This shortsighted focus on profitable skills has eroded our ability to criticize authority, reduced our sympathy with the marginalized and different, and damaged our competence to deal with complex global problems. And the loss of these basic capacities jeopardizes the health of democracies and the hope of a decent world. In response to this dire situation, Nussbaum argues that we must resist efforts to reduce education to a tool of the gross national product. Rather, we must work to reconnect education to the humanities in order to give students the capacity to be true democratic citizens of their countries and the world. In a new preface, Nussbaum explores the current state of humanistic education globally and shows why the crisis of the humanities has far from abated. Translated into over twenty languages, Not for Profit draws on the stories of troubling--and hopeful--global educational developments. Nussbaum offers a manifesto that should be a rallying cry for anyone who cares about the deepest purposes of education.… (més)

Chapter 3 was first-rate! And she has some great points. And I may be a bit biased.

However, I was confused on her constant references to India and Tagore. It seemed, until the afterword that the U. S. was in a quandary and Tagore had the answer but then I realized that Tagore's school wasn't doing too well either so using it as the ideal didn't seem to work for me. ( )

A reformist protest against the dystopian future of education portended by the increasing emphasis on "practical" results at all levels. Reads like a column in the New York Times. It draws heavily on the educational philosophy of Rabindranath Tagore, in addition to Rousseau, Dewey, and others. ( )

It's pathetic that we live in a society that so little values the humanities that scholars like Nussbaum feel compelled to defend them. Nussbaum's defense of the value of the humanities is informed, intelligent, thoughtful, and obvious. She could have summed up her arguments in a lengthy essay rather than a book but the points she repeats are worth repeating. ( )

Alarmada por el grado en que el estudio de las humanidades está siendo abandonado -en todos los niveles de la escolaridad y en todos los países del mundo- en beneficio de aprendizajes más directamente vinculados con las actividades económicas, en esta breve y apasionada obra Martha C. Nussbaum hace un alegato en favor de las artes liberales. "Más un manifiesto que un estudio empírico", como ella misma afirma, Sin fines de lucro muestra que cuando se promueven las habilidades técnicas en desmedro del estudio de las humanidades se dota a los estudiantes de herramientas útiles para el desarrollo económico -lo que no necesariamente garantiza una mayor calidad de vida- pero se los priva de las habilidades necesarias para el ejercicio del pensamiento crítico. En este libro polémico y movilizador, Martha C. Nussbaum muestra por qué las humanidades, sin duda centrales para la educación de ciudadanos de los estados democráticos, son también fundamentales para garantizar que el futuro no sólo permita compartir valores esenciales sino también el bienestar material.

[An] impassioned (if somewhat preachy) argument in favor of study of the humanities. She suggests, contra the critics, that “the liberal arts portion of college and university education in the United States now supports democratic citizenship better than it did fifty years ago.” Her concern is with the diminishing place given to the liberal arts in many institutions: their marginalization by technocratic and business-oriented demands
