Abstract

How people live and how they ought to live are the central concerns of planners and practitioners in the welfare industry. There are numerous systems of interpreting how people live. There are many criteria for measuring how people live. There are countless values, attitudes and prejudices which carry over into the realm of how people ought to live. As social administration is concerned with the aims and consequences of social interventions oriented to the enhancement of levels of living, especially for the weak and vulnerable, discussions of how people do live and how they ought to live form the substantive and theoretical underpinnings of our area of study.
