Chapter 6 Being Good and Being Goodfor Someone
Against Absolute Goodness

Richard Kraut

Oxford University Press

This chapter states some premises about the relationship that consists in something's being good for someone and its opposite (something's being bad for someone). First, that there are these two relationships: being good for someone and being bad for someone; furthermore, some things are related in these ways; and in favorable circumstances, we can know that these relationships hold. Second, that the relationship of being good for someone should not be defined, partly or wholly, in terms of something's being absolutely good.

Keywords:   good, bad, premises, someone
