Japanese translation of ''A Wish a Day for A Week'' (2014) by Amartya Sen

I have translated Amartya Sen’s "A Wish a Day for a Week" into Japanese (his permission granted on December 19, 2014) with my introduction.

In 1998, the year he received the Nobel Prize, I started reading his articles. In 2000, I ran into him in the elevator (the Palmer House, Chicago) at the philosophy conference venue. That time, I was finishing the course by Martha Nussbaum. Since then, I have been so fascinated by the Capability Approach developed by him and many others (now including me).
