On Progress and Human Development

27 November, 2014 - 18:30 to 20:00Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, London School of Economics

What is progress and how do we measure it? What account of wellbeing could accommodate a concern for self-realisation and self-development? May an approach based on quality of life provide a superior alternative to utilitarian cost-benefit analysis? And could such an approach inform policy and practice?

At a public lecture organised by the Forum for European Philosophy and hosted by the LSE, Paul Anand (IKD / OU), Catherine Audard (LSE) and Jonathan Wolff (UCL) combine insights from welfare economics and moral philosophy to offer new perspectives on the ideas of progress and human development.

Listen to podcast of On Progress and Human Development.
