SOC362H1: Quality of Institutions and Lives

Hours: 
24L

Theory and research on quality of life encompass studies of subjective dimensions of individual wellbeing, such as happiness, and studies that focus on objective indicators of the quality of institutions and settings, such as child mortality rates. Quality-of-life theories range from (sometimes utopian) classical sociological theories with a historical and political slant to recent interdisciplinary theories that integrate sociological, psychological, and philosophical approaches.
