O článku:
The geography of well-being is based on the knowledge that this concept has a spatial dimension and on the knowledge that well-being is not interchangeable with quality of life or happiness. Creating a well-being epistemology is challenging not only because of the prevailing terminological chaos but also for cultural and linguistic reasons. The aim of the paper is to outline the epistemology of well-being from a geographical point of view and its application at the level of Czech districts. The epistemology of the geography of well-being is based on the knowledge that it consists of subjective spatially differentiated satisfaction with life. This distinguishes it from the geography of quality of life, which is actually the geography of the quality of the place, formed by a set of objective indicators of amenities and other variables that form the quality of the place. We surveyed well-being and its drivers on a scale of 0 – 10 with face-to-face method and via social networks. In the final part of the paper, implications are derived.
