Jayawickreme, Eranda, and James Pawelski (2007). "Can Nussbaum’s Capabilities Approach Be Integrated Within a Complete Positive Psychological Theory of Happiness?" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.

In this paper, we will evaluate the suitability of Nussbaum’s more substantive account of capabilities as forming part of an integrated account of well-being that positive psychologists argue is required for the proper psychological study of well -being.
