A propos de cet article

365pp. Paperback - 1991. A few very minor imperfections to card covers otherwise near fine; clean, bright and well-bound. Rejecting fashionable subjectivist and cultural relativist approaches, this important book argues that human beings have universal and objective needs for health and autonomy and a right to their optimal satisfaction. The authors develop a system of social indicators to show what such optimisation would mean in practice and assess the records of a wide range of developed and underdeveloped economies in meeting their citizens' needs. Size: Octavo. N° de réf. du libraire 005433

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Rejecting fashionable subjectivist and cultural relativist approaches, this important book argues that human beings have universal and objective needs for health and autonomy and a right to their optimal satisfaction. The authors develop a system of social indicators to show what such optimization would mean in practice and assess the records of a wide range of developed and underdeveloped economies in meeting their citizens' needs

Critique:

'An ambitious and very welcome book...[which] combines a tight argument and a wide-ranging application...This will prove a major text not just in terms of the theory presented and the data that is summarised but in the research questions it poses.' - Nigel Parton, Times Higher Education Supplement

'[A] scrupulous and sophisticated case...for the ascription of universal needs...What is important and original...about [Doyal and Gough's] project is that it not only tells us what our basic needs are...but offers empirical criteria for the meeting of these goals...' - Kate Soper, New Left Review
