English term or phrase: human flourishing
Steve Bruce’s hypothesis—that, in modern conditions,
religion will only persist over the long run where it ‘finds work to do other than relating individuals to the supernatural’—is judged to be ‘deeply implausible’. Similarly, Martha Nussbaum’s influential statement of the ‘capacities’ approach to human flourishing is (narrowly) characterized as making a distinction between internal and external transcendence and then favouring the former.

florecimiento humano

Algunos textos se basan en la visión aristotélica clásica de florecimiento humano (human flourishing) para proponer reemplazar ingreso y utilidad por la idea de capacidad (capability).
