Capability and Deliberation
Hinchliffe, Geoffrey
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v28 n5 p403-413 Sep 2009
This paper explores the role of deliberation in the context of the capability approach to human well-being from the standpoint of the individual doing the reflecting. The concept of a "strong evaluator" is used develop a concept of the agent of capability. The role of values is discussed in the process of deliberating, particularly the nature of and difference between prudential values and intrinsic values. Some consideration is given to the limits and constraints on deliberation and finally a brief example of deliberation is considered--that of occupational choice.
