The World citizenship opposes idea of nationalism
Nussbaum’s main argument is about idea of world citizenship and role of literature which can contribute on understanding of people around the world. It is logical that through studying foreign languages and religions, literature people can understand each other. However there is problems with idea of world citizenship. As in some powerful states such as China, Russia idea of nationalism is dominating. So this idea of world citizenship opposes to idea of nationalism .
