The concepts of well-being and quality of life concern evaluative judgements.
There is insufficient understanding in current literature that these judgements
are made variously due to not only use of differing values and differing
research instruments but also differing standpoints, differing purposes, and
differing theoretical views and ontological presuppositions. The paper
elucidates these sources of differences and how they underlie the wide diversity
of current conceptions
