The paper reexamines the controversy about Bergson–Samuelson social welfare functions (BSFs) that took place between welfare economists and social choice theorists as a consequence of Arrow’s () impossibility theorem. The ’s witnessed a new version of the theorem that was meant to establish that BSFs “make interpersonal comparisons of utility or are dictatorial.”. issue of social welfare. Other than the moribund "welfare economics" approach, modern social science4 has had little interest in the philosophical conception of social welfare. Such disinterest can be traced to the philosophical foundations of modern social science--to logical positivism and its impact on the character of the social sciences.

NicholasBaigent, in Handbook of Social Choice and Welfare, 6 Continuity. A social welfare function is continuous if changes in social preference can be bounded to be arbitrarily small by taking sufficiently small changes in agents' preferences.

In Section“small” is defined using the Euclidean metric. 11 This property defines topological social choice theory and is therefore. In welfare economics, a social welfare function is a function that ranks social states (alternative complete descriptions of the society) as less desirable, more desirable, or indifferent for every possible pair of social states.

Inputs of the function include any variables considered to affect the economic welfare of a society. In using welfare measures of persons in the society as inputs. In social choice theory, unrestricted domain, or universality, is a property of social welfare functions in which all preferences of all voters (but no other considerations) are allowed.

Intuitively, unrestricted domain is a common requirement for social choice functions, and is a condition for Arrow's impossibility theorem. With unrestricted domain, the social welfare function accounts for.

35(1), pagesFebruary. Social welfare can be described by means of a so called “Social Welfare Function” (SWF).5 An attractive definition of SWF, is put forward by Champernowne and Cowell (; 88): «The generic term for coherent and consistent ordering of social states in terms of their desirability is a social-welfare function.

We use the term ‘social. This chapter provides an introduction to the use of social welfare functions in welfare economics and social choice theory for the comparative evaluation of social alternatives. With a social welfare function, social preferences depend on individual well-beings.

These well-beings are expressed in terms of either preferences or utilities. Three main approaches are considered: Bergson-Samuelson.
