Living well: wellbeing and agency

This book argues that the capability approach is a normative language, which provides the most encompassing framework available to date to judge situations and inform social and political action so as to enable people to live well in a shared natural environment. This chapter and the next will present some of the tools that this normative language offers and how they can help answer, or at least give some outline of answers to, the ethical questions raised by the stories narrated in the previous chapter.
