In this article I discuss human capability theory, which posits that the combined capabilities of a nation's citizens might be a better indication of its quality of life than the crude measure of economic growth. Capabilities that pervade all other capabilities are referred to as architectonic capabilities. I argue that ubuntu might be viewed as an architectonic capability - that it pervades all capabilities and conveys the idea that our doing, being and becoming are dependent on others (humans and non-humans).
