Social Progress: A compass

2018 (English)In: Rethinking Society for the 21st Century: Report of the International Panel on Social Progress: Volume 1: Socio-Economic Transformations / [ed] International Panel on Social Progress (IPSP), Cambridge University Press, 2018, p. 41-80Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This chapter sets out the main normative dimensions that should be used in assessing whether societies have made social progress and whether a given set of proposals is likely to bring progress. Some of these dimensions are values, bearing in the first instance on the evaluation of states of affairs; others are action-guiding principles. Values can inspire and in that sense also guide actions. Principles aim to offer more specific guidance on how to rank, distribute, and realize values. Recognizing a multiplicity of values and principles is important not only to being respectful of the variety of reasonable views about what matters but also because it is difficult to reduce the list of dimensions that ultimately matter to a shorter one in a way that reflects all aspects of the phenomena in question. Many of the chapters that follow will explicitly address only a subset of these values and principles: the ones most salient for their issues or areas; but in principle, all remain relevant.
