About this book

The Quality of Life addresses issues of defining and measuring the quality of life. Recent developments in the philosophical definition of well-being are discussed and linked to practical issues such as the delivery of health care, and the assessment of women's quality of life. Leading philosophers and economists have contributed to The Quality of Life to consider the problems the subject raises.

The Quality of Life reflects the growing need for interdisciplinary work as economists become more sensitive to the importance of facing fundamental philosophical questions and of the importance of linking their theoretical enquiries to an understanding of complex practical problems.

"I am [...] certain that the effort recorded here will help to draw philosophical and economic theory a little closer to the world of crying children and inflamed conflict."
