The Capabilities Approach as pioneered by Martha C. Nussbaum and others
elevates the enabling of free self-development to a criterion of social
justice. In recent years, it has become a widely accepted paradigm in
Western development policies; currently it is discussed to which extent
this normative framework can be applied to other social areas. This volume
presents interdisciplinary papers resulting from discussions young
scholars of different disciplines had with Martha C. Nussbaum during
Unseld Lecture 2010 at the Forum Scientiarum of Tuebingen University.
