Doesn’t everyone bring the social contract into all of their discussions? What? It is just me? Oh, well.

This video is from the documentary Examined Life. Watch the clip. It is very well done. I do not agree totally with Nussbaum, but I am intrigued by her approach.

I share a clip from Examined Life featuring Judith Butler here. Reminds me of a paper I wrote about Butler and Nussbaum my senior year. Ah, memories.
