Wellbeing, Freedom and Social Justice: The Capability Approach Re-Examined by Ingrid Robeyns

This new textbook, recently published by OpenBook Publishers, explores such questions as:

  • How do we evaluate ambiguous concepts such as wellbeing, freedom, and social justice?
  • How do we develop policies that offer everyone the best chance to achieve what they want from life?

The author offers an illuminating and rigorously interdisciplinary interpretation of the capability approach, an increasingly influential theoretical framework.
