    ‘Wonder and the Conditions of Democratic Life’

    The Titus-Hepp Lecture Series welcomes Jeremy Bendik-Keymer, associate professor of philosophy at Case Western Reserve University, presenting “Wonder and the Conditions of Democratic Life.”

    Martha Nussbaum’s work on human capabilities has contributed substantially to development work internationally and to political theory globally. Nussbaum employs a concept of wonder to explain why a similar concern for human capabilities ought to extend to the capabilities of other living beings. In this talk, Bendik-Keymer argues that wonder is helpful for opening up consideration of each other’s lives in democracy. Consideration of other kinds of lives and consideration of each other’s lives are therefore intertwined.
