This book presents an exploration of the idea of the common or social good, extended so that alternatives with different populations can be ranked. Basing rankings on the well-being, broadly conceived, of those who are alive (or ever lived), the axiomatic method is employed. Topics investigated include the measurement of individual well-being, social attitudes toward inequality of well-being, the main classes of population principles, principles that provide incomplete rankings or rank uncertain alternatives, best choices from feasible sets, and applications.

Book Description:

This book presents an exploration of the idea of the common or social good, extended so that alternatives with different populations can be ranked. Principles that rank alternatives are called population principles. They make it possible to rank alternative histories of the world, such as those that arise in environmental discussions, according to their goodness. In addition to examinations of the various principles, optimal poocoes are also discussed and applications to population policies are investigated.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book presents an exploration of the idea of the common or social good, extended so that alternatives with different populations can be ranked. The approach is, in the main, welfarist, basing rankings on the well-being, broadly conceived, of those who are alive (or ever lived). The axiomatic method is employed, and topics investigated include: the measurement of individual well-being, social attitudes toward inequality of well-being, the main classes of population principles, principles that provide incomplete rankings, principles that rank uncertain alternatives, best choices from feasible sets, and applications. The chapters are divided, with mathematical arguments confined to the second part. The first part is intended to make the arguments accessible to a more general readership. Although the book can be read as a defense of the critical-level generalized-utilitarian class of principles, comprehensive examinations of other classes are included.
