Synopsis

Negotiating Capability and Diaspora examines Amartya Sen's theory of capability in dialogue with the American philosopher John Rawls. Sen's theory arose to show an oriental dimension of the critique of utilitarianism that valorizes will power and honor diversity. Indian philosopher Aurobindo also enters the discourse to complement the theory of capability with supra-rational theory of emotional purification. In addition, feminist philosopher Martha Nussbaum plays a major role in the book as do the literary writers of diaspora.
