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.
