9788131603215: Human Development, Well-Being & Globalization: Alternative Perspectives

Over time, different aspects of human development have been infused with an alternative, multidisciplinary, and cross-cultural perspective. There has been a profound dissatisfaction and confusion about narrow economic and social concepts and indicators regarding human development and social progress. This book reexamines the concepts, ideas, and issues of human development, suggesting the need to consider broader and more multidimensional meanings of development. The human development approach associated with the economist-philosopher Amartya Sen has offered a remarkable course correction in terms of focusing, not just on income, but on capabilities to enable one to choose and live a worthwhile life. The book argues that capabilities can be even more fulfilling if they lead to real empowerment and multidimensional well-being. Well-being is conceived, not as self-centered happiness, but more in the sense of human flourishing and virtues. In the context of neo-liberal globalization and its malaise - which is manifest in global warming and climate crisis, the present global economic crisis, as well as the crisis of meaning and purpose of our common humanity - ideas have been put forth for alternative globalization in the form of the World Social Forum, as opposed to the World Economic Forum.

Book Description Rawat Publications, 2010. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. The thematic articles over a period of time on different aspects of human development, well-being and globalization are infused with an alternative, multidisciplinary and cross-cultural perspective. An attempt has been made in this book to rethink concepts, ideas and issues and suggest the need for consideration of broader and multidimensional meanings of development. There is a profound dissatisfaction and confusion about narrow economic and social concepts and indicators of development and social progress. The human development approach associated with Amartya Sen has offered a remarkable course correction in terms of focusing not just on income but on capabilities to enable one to choose and live a valuable life which is worth living.

More ethically sound reconsiderations of old assumptions about integration of the world, our planet?s future and global well-being have been explored. ?Mr Shekhawat has taken up those aspects of development which are generally relegated to the background in current academic discussion. His grasp of conceptual and historical factors is evident in these writings. I do hope that the analysis that he has attempted and the suggestions he has offered will be seriously considered by scholars and practitioners of social and economic change? Professor V.S. Vyas Professor Emeritus and Former Chairman of the Institute of Development Studies, Jaipur and Member, Prime Minister?s Economic Advisory Council Printed Pages: 256. Bookseller Inventory # 66905
