Do Not Despise Your Inner World: Advice on a Full Life from Philosopher Martha Nussbaum | Brain Pickings
Martha Nussbaum - Our emotional life maps our incompleteness: A creature without any needs would never have reasons for fear, or grief, or hope, or anger. But for that very reason we are often ashamed of our emotions, and of the relations of need and dependency bound up with them. Perhaps males, in our society, are especially likely to be ashamed of being incomplete and dependent, because a dominant image of masculinity tells them that they should be self-sufficient and dominant. So people flee from their inner world of feeling, and from articulate mastery of their own emotional experiences. The current psychological literature on the life of boys in America indicates that a large proportion of boys are quite unable to talk about how they feel and how others feel — because they have learned to be ashamed of feelings and needs, and to push them underground.

“Our emotional life maps our incompleteness: A creature without any needs would never have reasons for fear, or grief, or hope, or anger.” || http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2012/10/12/martha-nussbaum-take-my-advice/ + “To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control.” || http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2014/03/14/martha-nussbaum-bill-moyers-world-of-ideas/ || || Polluted by things we can not control. ... Tragedy comes only to those who live life. || Being a human means accepting promises from other people and trusting that other people will be good to you. When that is too much to bear, it is always possible to retreat into the thought, “I’ll live for my own comfort, for my own revenge, for my own anger, and I just won’t be a member of society anymore.” That really means, “I won’t be a human being anymore.”
