Details

This will be a major international, two-day workshop on the nature and significance of temporal well-being (i.e., what it is to be well off at or during a particular time--for example, a moment, a day, a week, a year, or a whole chapter of one’s life). The impetus for the workshop is Ben Bramble’s recent monograph, The Passing of Temporal Well-Being (2018, Routledge), which argues that only lifetime well-being has intrinsic normative significance, and therefore, that there is no such thing as temporal well-being.
