Choć koncepcja jakości życia i badania nad nią zyskują coraz większą wagę w nauce, wciąż nie ma pełnej zgody co do samej definicji tego pojęcia. Najważniejsza linia podziału przebiega pomiędzy definicjami subiektywnymi i obiektywnymi. Subiektywne określenia jakości życia, choć dobrze współgrają z poczuciem zadowolenia z życia jednostek, nastręczają wielu trudności pomiarowych. Dzieje się tak głównie z powodu rozmaitych obciążeń poznawczych i afektywnych, jakimi obarczone są odpowiedzi respondentów pytanych o subiektywną jakość ich życia. Ponadto, nawet subiektywne odczucia mogą dotyczyć albo satysfakcji z życia jako całości, albo chwilowego zadowolenia, przy czym w badaniach nie jest łatwo oddzielić te różne aspekty. Z drugiej strony, obiektywne wskaźniki jakości życia są łatwiejsze do zmierzenia, jednakże wydawać się mogą arbitralne, jeśli nie mają uzasadnienia w postaci jakiegoś odniesienia do subiektywnego dobrostanu. Pomimo możliwych zastrzeżeń, to właśnie obiektywne wskaźniki są lepszą podstawą formułowania wytycznych politycznych i jako takie stały się częścią definicji zrównoważonego rozwoju. Jakość życia, obecnych i przyszłych pokoleń, jest zarówno punktem wyjścia określenia, w jaki sposób powinien dokonywać się rozwój, jak i celem takiego zrównoważonego rozwoju. Niniejszy artykuł jest krótkim przeglądem koncepcji związanych z subiektywnymi i obiektywnymi określeniami jakości życia, trudnościami z nimi związanymi oraz współzależnościami z koncepcją zrównoważonego rozwoju.(abstrakt oryginalny)

Although most of scientists engaged in quality of life researches agree in many aspects of the definition of the very subject of their discipline, there are also many controversies. The main parting line divides objective and subjective definitions of quality of life, which, however, by many researchers are treated as complementary. Subjective indicators of quality of life, although better complying with the sense of well-being of individuals, are often difficult to be measured, because of cognitive and affective biases of humans. Objective indicators, although less inconvenient in finding their values, may seem to be arbitrary ones and require justification, possibly by implying their interdependence with subjective sense of quality of life. On the other hand, objective indicators are strictly connected with the definition of sustainable development: quality of life is a substantial part of the definition of sustainable development, while sustainability of development seems to be necessary for high quality of human life. This paper is a short review of the main concepts concerning quality of life and its relationship with sustainability of development.(original abstract)
