A better way to be angry: advice from philosopher Martha Nussbaum

Tapestry

This week on Tapestry, Mary Hynes speaks with world-renowned philosopher Martha Nussbaum about anger - how it's used and abused, what it's for, and how human beings might learn to 'do' anger with a little more skill. Nussbaum's book on the subject is called "Anger and Forgiveness: Resentment, Generosity, Justice." Martha Nussbaum was the winner of the 2018 Berggruen Prize for Philosophy and Culture, a one million dollar award given to a thinker whose ideas have profoundly shaped the world. She is a professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago.
