In Boston Review, the eminent American philosopher, legal scholar, and classicist Martha C. Nussbaum offers a reading of Lin-Maunuel Miranda’s “Hamilton.” I dissent.
UPDATE: How can this matter right now? That’s something I imagine readers thinking, and it’s something I thought, when first asked to respond. And that was before election day. Right now it matters to me this way: You can blame Trumpism and be correct. My job is to blame the certified liberal-intellectual culture that has prevailed throughout my lifetime. We own this.
Your response is a beautiful thing Bill. I read it with a growing grin on my face. I’m sharing with our history department. Well done!
Thanks for your response in dissent to Nussbaum, Mr. Hogeland.
Where is your dissent?
