What is a global citizen? Philosopher Martha Nussbaum will lead a discussion on cosmopolitanism, or the idea that humans should associate by their shared humanity rather than by nation, class, gender or race. Nussbaum calls the concept ‘noble, but flawed’, and offers thoughts on the modern-day shortcomings of cosmopolitism such as material aid, mass migrations, and the consideration of animals and the environment.
