Paternalism/VsNussbaum/Nussbaum: From a feminist perspective, but also in the context of development cooperation, a paternalistic, authoritarian potential of their theory is criticized (Phillips 2001(1); Dhawan 2009(2); Carter 2014(3)). The main issue here is an implicit tension between a vague theory of the good, which wants a wide scope for decision-making for the actual exercise of the basic capabilities to be guaranteed, and a certain, more content-rich conception, which is oriented towards the actual functioning ("true human functioning").
