Inhaltsangabe: A multidisciplinary group of experts provide unique reflections on the capabilities or 'human development' approach to understanding well-being and basic political entitlements. With a special focus on Martha C. Nussbaum's contributions to political philosophy, this thought-provoking book will interest a wide-range of readers and policy-makers interested in human development policies.
'This wonderful collection of essays provides an intellectual feast. The authors engage deeply with Nussbaum's capability approach (as distinct from Amartya Sen's capability approach) from a wide range of perspectives - political philosophy, gender, environment, poverty, justice - revealing both Nussbaum's originality and their own insights. You wish yourself immediately in the same room, conversing.' Bina Agarwal, University of Manchester
'A thought-provoking interdisciplinary collection of contributions by leading scholars on the theoretical foundations of the capabilities approach, on gender and on equality issues, taking off from Martha C. Nussbaum's pioneering work on these topics. This book is a tribute to Nussbaum's impressive scientific output, a reflection on core aspects of the capabilities approach and an important addition to the literature on human capabilities.' Enrica Chiappero-Martinetti, University of Pavia
'It is important to explore alternative approaches to the interpretation and use of the idea of capabilities, and this wide-ranging collection of essays makes a significant contribution to the on-going debates on the subject. It is a very welcome addition to the literature.' Amartya Sen, Nobel Laureate, Economics 1998
