Summary: How can higher education today create a community of critical thinkers that transcends the boundaries of class, gender, and nation? Martha C. Nussbaum, philosopher and classicist, argues that contemporary curricular reform is already producing such "citizens of the world" in its advocacy of diverse forms of cross-cultural studies. She draws on Socrates and the Stoics to establish three core values of liberal education, and then shows these values at work in
