(ii) outline and explain the central features of your selected theory of well-being,
(iii) assess the overall merits of your selected theory of well-being explicitly and only in terms of the desirable features that you have settled on (e.g. when you discuss any particular objection to a theory, you will need to work out which desirable or undesirable features are at stake in that
