When anger is valuable

The part of anger that tells you “this is wrong and shouldn’t happen again” is always valuable, says Martha Nussbaum, the author of a new book The Monarchy of Fear.

However, Nussbaum adds, “To be angry has been an assertion of masculinity. Once you start looking at it, the issue of who’s ‘more emotional’ and what that means starts to break up….

“You have to turn to the future and think which emotions will actually help us solve the problem.”

We read about Nussbaum in the July 30, 2018, issue of Time magazine.
