Martha Nussbaum and the Uses of Imagination in Political Philosophy

In my research, I will examine the role of imagination in Martha Nussbaum’s political theory. In particular, I will (1) try to establish if Nussbaum provides a single, clearly defined concept of imagination; (2) assess the practical uses of imagination in the scope of her own work; and (3) see if the theory can be used in the Central European context, which has not been explicitly analyzed by the philosopher.
