The Wellbeing and Human Development Project

John Rawls questioned whether Amartya Sen’s capability approach to moral philosophy and welfare economics was workable. There has, as a result been a huge amount of interaction between philosophers and social scientists on these topics and in this project we seek to sustain and extend these interactions over the coming years. In particular we shall engage with issues such as measurement of wellbeing, the nature of poverty, the foundations of accounts of human flourishing and diverse approaches to human capabilities and happiness, as well as economics and philosophy more generally.
