The purpose of this paper is to examine what role anger plays in the moral realm. To do so, I will critique Martha Nussbaum’s view that anger is normatively problematic for sustaining moral relations due to its prevalent relation to seeking payback and status. I will expand the limits Nussbaum imposes on what people can be angry at as well as what are normal responses to the emotion, to attempt to show how anger can be a vital tool in our moral lives as a tool in response to wrongdoing or injustice.
