PEREIRA, Gustavo. Fundamentación universalista de una lista de capacidades requerida por la justicia global. Diánoia [online]. 2006, vol.51, n.57, pp.79-102. ISSN 0185-2450.

Based on a theory of means and capabilities, this paper offers universalistic foundations to distributive and compensatory criteria, characteristic of the equality of capabilities. In order to do this, certain pragmatic transcendental foundations will be used, which combine universal validity and local sensitivity. From this perspective, Nussbaum’s use of reflective equilibrium to reach universalistic grounds is criticised, although the reflective equilibrium is adopted here as the hermeneutic moment which is required by the applicability of such universalistic grounds.

Keywords : justice; equality; capabilities; foundations.
