Quality of Life and the Anthropological Perspective

Author

Listed:
  • Richard Wilk

Abstract

Anthropology has always had a commitment to cultural relativity, which has inhibited critical thinking or research on quality of life. I argue that cultural relativity remains an important caution to any attempt to measure or compare quality of life, but that there are also many reasons to pursue such comparisons.
