The Guardian interviews Nussbaum

http://www.guardian.co.uk/weekend/story/0,,2198680,00.html

Martha Nussbaum is one of those contemporary philosophers I really like, I read her Love’s Knowledge; listened to her in interviews, and have briefly come across her work with Amaryta Sen. This is a funny interview. I can’t recommend Love’s Knowledge any more; its a wonderful book, and appealing to the non-philosopher too. She has some very human insights into interpersonal relationships; something that philosophers often DON’T have!

Nussbaum apparently has some views about the Enlightenment; as many philosophers are these days; she’s an Aristotelian about a few issues.
