From Our Editors

This book is about several closely related ideas--'well-being', 'welfare', 'utility', 'the quality of life'. These are ideas at the centre of morality, politics, law, and economics. The book is primarily a work of moral philosophy but is relevant to all of these subjects. The author offers answers to three questions. What is the best way to understand well-being? To what extent can it be measured? And where should it fit in our moral and political thought?
