"Well-Being: Subjective, Objective, or Both?"
Thursday, March 28th, 4:00 - 5:30PM, Armstrong Hall 231
In this paper I discuss the subjectivity/objectivity debate with regard to well-being. I don’t wish to argue for either view, but rather explain why our well-being language as well as those practices, such as friendship and parenting, that well-being centrally animates have features that tell in favor of both the subjective and the objective nature of well-being. I show why on the current philosophical approach these features cannot be reconciled, thus failing to do justice to some of them. Finally, I sketch a new approach aimed at doing just that.
This event is free and open to the public.
