An Appropriation of Sen’s Capability Approach

This book is meant for all interested in human empowerment, the capability approach, land reform, and economic and social justice.

Lawrence Daka weaves together these themes in light of Amartya Sen’s groundbreaking philosophical informational basis–the capability approach.

He builds on Sen’s response to weaknesses of traditional economics and normative utilitarianism as evaluative disciplines and John Rawls’ influential theory.

By testing it with the Zimbabwe land reform, Daka judges that Sen’s approach is not a fully adequate evaluation framework in light of increasing poverty, deprivation, and dehumanization, especially in the third world because it reveals a strong individualist anthropology still operative in it.

Instead of focusing on integral human beings, the approach is overly abstract, incomplete and inconsistent especially when applied to zones of deprivation.

In order to achieve a better quality of life, human dignity, and an integral, comprehensive, community-oriented, and robust anthropology in evaluating individual and social advantages and development, Daka proposes a human “empowerment” understanding of economic and social justice as a revision of Sen’s approach.
