hpd – holidays: Armando Manchisi, “Scelta o scoperta? Il problema dell’identità personale in Amartya Sen” («Universa. Recensioni di filosofia», vol. 10, n. 3/2021)

hegelpd takes a summer holiday. In this period we will be sharing recent essays and reviews by our research group. 

We are pleased to share the essay Scelta o scoperta? Il problema dell’identità personale in Amartya Sen by Armando Manchisi, published in the special issue of «Universa. Recensioni di filosofia» (10, 3), celebrating ten years of the journal.

Here below you can find the abstract of the text:

In the following paper I explore the consistency and efficacy of Amartya Sen’s position in the light of the philosophical debate on personal identity. To this end, I examine the key concepts of the capability approach as well as the writings that Sen explicitly devotes to the topic of personal identity. Given some difficulties that will emerge as result of the analysis, I finally propose possible improvements.
