Jonathan Wolff (UCL), Paul Anand (OU) and Catherine Audard (LSE): ‘On Progress and Human Development’

27 November 2014, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

What is progress and how do we measure it? What account of wellbeing could accommodate a concern for self-realization 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? Paul Anand, Catherine Audard and Jonathan Wolff will combine insights from welfare economics and moral philosophy to offer new perspectives on the ideas of progress and human development.
