Capability: A Philosophical Position
In this chapter we focus attention on what – for us – is the central goal of education. Whilst some might prioritise knowledge, understanding and scholarship as the cornerstones that mark out the ‘educated’ person, we hold a somewhat different view. We prefer a view of education that celebrates qualities that empower people to make a difference in the world. Developing learners’ capability therefore seems to us a more important goal.
