University of Chicago Law Professor Martha Nussbaum traces the philosophical and historical origins of the American tradition of liberty of conscience by looking at the career and writings of Roger Williams, founder of Rhode Island and author of important works about religious freedom.
Eminent philosopher and law professor Martha Nussbaum has made significant contributions to an array of disciplines. Working within the fields of philosophy, law, classics, and political science, she has advanced the interdisciplinary study of ongoing problems in feminism, democracy, religion, and education. Nussbaum has described the issues that engage her as "a unity of problems" that are all at root philosophical problems, but that have implications for various other disciplines. Nussbaum serves as the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics, and holds appointments in the Philosophy Department, the Law School, and the Divinity School at the University of Chicago. She also is the founder and coordinator of the Center for Comparative Constitutionalism.
