The Flute Case - Amartya Sen

edited December 2014 in Ethics
A knows how to play, B doesn't have any toy so need, C made it so claims
From equal distribution of resources pt of view >>> goes to B
स्वातान्त्र्यवादी, निर्माण करने वाले का पक्षधर, अपने श्रम पर उत्पत्ति का अधिका So Communist and rightists both will agree to give it to C
Utilitarianism >>> goes to A
This is what Sen told, but i think communist will also give it to B from socialist pt of view and further Wen told that though as per Utilitarianism principle it ges to B still there will be some dilema in his mind coz had he given flute to B, from low base effect the overall benefit wud have ben more still he will choose A i dont think he will have second thought and he will certainly give it to A only

    I'd return it to C and make him/her sell it to A mandatorily. Again, A would be allowed to purchase it and retain it only if he/she shares it with B.

    If anyone refuses to comply, the article would be confiscated by the state and auctioned off and the proceeds retained for welfare programs.

  • @jatsab are u having philosophy?? Sen doesnt want to decide to whom the flute belongs. He only wants to show there can be no predetermined set of principles which can determine distributive justice. Thats why he criticises lexical principles that rawls had derived in his theory of justice.. hope it helps.

    i dont have philosophy and you are right Sen doesnt want to decide whom the flute belongs. Sen merely explains diff. theory leads to diff. receiver and they all are right in their perspective.
    Utilitarianism >>> goes to A(its ok, but Sen further goes and says that A will have second thought and while giving flute to A at some point of time he will think that it cud have been given to B, coz B was very poor so if B gets flute overall society also gets benefited coz of low base effect but i dont think Utilitarianism says so )
    my second doubt - communist will never give flute to C just coz he made it i think communist will give flute to B from egalitarian point of view.
