Catherine Lutz

Oxford University Press

Lutz, from an anthropological perspective, offers three points of discussion in Nussbaum's argument: (1) the role of individualism in Nussbaum's scheme of relationship between emotion, rationality, and gender; (2) emotionality as an ideological symptom of women's powerlessness, not a cause of their social position; and (3) extension of case studies from the field of development to the arena of public policy formation.

Keywords:   emotion, individualism, policy, power, rationality
