Abstract

Este artigo visa a sistematizar as críticas que Amartya Sen dirige à estrutura teórica adotada por Arrow e a mostrar como, para fugir aos resultados devastadores do teorema da Impossibilidade, Sen defende a ampliação do universo de informações a serem utilizadas para embasar a escolha social. Inicialmente é apresentado um breve apanhado da teoria da Escolha Social de Arrow com o objetivo de fornecer o pano de fundo para a compreensão das críticas que Sen dirige a esse sistema teórico. Em seguida são expostas as interpretações de Sen sobre as razões que levaram ao resultado da impossibilidade e as críticas que este autor dirige aos fundamentos da teoria de Arrow. Por fim, são tecidas algumas considerações sobre a natureza desta reflexão crítica e suas consequências para a visão de Bem-Estar posteriormente adotada por Sen.
