Resumen

KLAASEN, John. Towards an approach to development as mission: The category of personhood as addressed by Amartya Sen?. Missionalia (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.42, n.1-2, pp.72-87. ISSN 2312-878X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7832/42-1-2-49.

This paper is concerned with the role of personhood in development. I will be looking at the extent to which the influential model of development proposed by Amartya Sen does justice to the category of personhood. I will provide an overview of the work of Sen in the area of development and then provide some critical engagement. Drawing from the work of Sen this article provides some pointers or markers towards an approach to development as missionary role. Bosch's phrase "creative tension" provides a key principle for an approach to development.

Palabras clave : Sen; mission; personhood; agency.
