Metrics of Subjective Well-Being: Limits and Improvements By Gaël Brulé, Filomena Maggino
English | PDF | 2017 | 265 Pages | ISBN : 3319618091 | 4.71 MB

This volume analyses the quantification of the effect of factors measuring subjective well-being, and in particular on the metrics applied. With happiness studies flourishing over the last decades, both in number of publications as well as in their exposure, researchers working in this field are aware of potential weaknesses and pitfalls of these metrics. Contributors to this volume reflect on different factors influencing quantification, such as scale size, wording, language, biases, and cultural comparability in order to raise awareness on the tools and on their conditions of use.

It argues that by opening up educational encounters to allow for ‘dissent’ – that is, disagreement, criticism and open dialogue – our everyday social life experiences and relationships would flourish, and potentially allow for a more peaceful and harmonious co-existence alongside those with whom we disagree.

Children were asked what justice in their opinion was and whether they felt treated justly or not.
