Robeyns, Ingrid (2010). "Sen on Transcendental Theories of Justice" Paper presented at the 7th annual conference of the HDCA, 21-23 September 2010, Amman, Jordan.
This is a short version of the paper which I’ll read at the 2010 HDCA Conference in Amman, September 21-23. The following text is a contribution to a book symposium on Amartya Sen’s The Idea of Justice, which is forthcoming (with additional contributions by Fabienne Peter and Constanze Binder, and a Reply by Sen) in The Journal of Economic Methodology. I’m hoping that Sen’s Reply will be available a little while before the HDCA Conference, which would allow me to further engage with his arguments. The full paper which I will read in Amman will be available a few days before the HDCA conference, and I’ll be more than happy to send anyone interested a copy by e-mail.
