Abstract / Description

Book review of: Human development and capabilities: re-imagining the university of the twenty-first century / edited by Alejandra Boni, Melanie Walker (978-0415536325, 256 pages)

The review looked at the advantage of the approach suggested in the book regarding the role of HE which is more compatible with promotion human welfare. The book was a criticism of the over focus on economic rational without considering long term effect on the human condition. The review was overall positive but argued that the book did not go far enough, and in the case of some authors such as Nussbaum, there was a contrast between the argument on what constitutes 'justice' and her actual actions as in the case of supporting a brutal regime.
