Truth and the Capability of Learning
Hinchliffe, Geoffrey
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v41 n2 p221-232 May 2007
This paper examines learning as a capability, taking as its starting point the work of Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum. The paper is concerned to highlight the relation between learning and truth, and it does so by examining the idea of a genealogy of truth and also Donald Davidson's coherence theory. Thus the notion of truth is understood to be not only built into the capability of learning but also translated across into other capabilities.
