Title:
Amartya Sen’s Capability Approach and Catholic Social Teaching in dialogue: an alliance for freedom and justice?
Authors:
Davies, Augusto Zampini
Abstract:
This thesis explores the connection between Amartya Sen’s Capability Approach (CA) and Catholic Social Teaching (CST). It questions whether their economic and theological views can be methodologically and practically compatible, articularly around issues of development as freedom and wellbeing as justice. The thesis proposes dialogue between CA and CST, framed by some parables of the New Testament, and argues that he fruit of such a dialogue can enhance human development and reduce injustices, especially in poor regions in Latin America.
