Speaker(s): Professor Paul Anand, Catherine Audard, Professor Jonathan Wolff

Recorded on 27 November 2014 at Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House

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.

Paul Anand is Professor of Economics at the Open University.

Catherine Audard is the Chair of the Forum for European Philosophy and Visiting Fellow in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at LSE.

Jonathan Wolff is Professor of Philosophy at University College London.
