An Overview

  • Thomas E. Jordan
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Well-Being and Quality of Life Research book series (BRIEFSWELLBEING)


A discriminating feature of this set of essays is their disparity; that is, they exhibit a range of procedures and of focus. The first essay explores the quality of housing in Dublin as the eighteenth century ended. The investigator, the Rev. James Whitelaw—a Church of Ireland minister, exhibited a sensibility in which empiricism prevailed over impressions as a way to understand the range of housing quality.
