Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

This chapter explores the notion of wellbeing in relation to the pursuit of the good life. In doing so, it asserts that treating children as in a state of becoming is disempowering for children. In considering the good life, it is proposed that being well and living well are central and that this is facilitated through critical reflection and philosophical dialogue. The need for thinking that impacts on action is maintained and that ultimately the pursuit of the good life involves thinking of others as well as oneself.
