Abstract

Do our education systems cultivate humanity? In Nussbaum’s widely acclaimed book, titled Cultivating Humanity (1998), she posited three capacities that are foundational to the cultivation of humanity: (1) ‘critical examination of oneself and one’s traditions’, (2) ‘an ability to see themselves not simply as citizens of some local region or group but also, and above all, as human beings
bound to all other human beings by ties of recognition and concern’ and (3) ‘narrative imagination’ meaning, the ability to think what it might be like to be in the shoes of a person different from oneself, to be an intelligent reader of that person’s story, and to understand the emotions and wishes and desires that someone so placed might have. (pp. 9–11).
