Global Ethics: 10 Universal Essentials (Capabilities) to Well Being
June 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join UNC-A Humanities lecturer Grace Campbell to explore the essentials of what is required for people to achieve well-being. Is there a universal measure of global justice and human flourishing that also respects religious and cultural differences? Prof. Campbell will present the 10 capabilities to well-being proposed by Martha Nussbaum in her book “Women and Human Development”. It quickly becomes evident just how dire the conditions are under which so many women around the world try to live, work and love.
