    • Abstract:
      This paper explores the relationship between Republicanism and the capability approach. While these views and the notions of freedom they endorse are distinct, it is argued that when we trace some of the antecedents of the capability approach notably in the works of Karl Marx these approaches are more closely connected than one might expect from an exchange between Philip Pettit and Amartya Sen. It is, for this reason, unsurprising that Pettit uses the capability approach in advancing his Republican view, though in ways which are quite different from Sen's and Martha Nussbaum's specific proposals. Nonetheless, I argue that development of the capability approach also converges with the Republican view once one explicitly lists capabilities relating to self-respect and dignity in the way that Nussbaum does in her version of the approach. I illustrate this point in the context of disability. [ABSTRACT FROM PUBLISHER]
