A taxonomic approach to quality of life studies
Abstract. The constant research made by economists as well as other social scientists produces a vast literature on quality of life studies. On the other hand capturing all these researches, theories and results emerged from quality of life studies is not an easy task for someone less familiar with these studies. In this context, the present paper is using lakatosian methodology in order to identify taxonomic criteria that allow drawing some borders between quality of life research programs. Using this methodology we identify two different criteria at hardcore level: rationality and utility; one for heuristics level: research methodology; and one for protective belt level: public policies. These taxonomic criteria provide a reliable framework to distinguish among four research programs in quality of life studies: traditional economics, happiness studies, behavioral economics and capabilities approach.
Keyword: quality of life, rationality, utility, research methodology, public policy.
