Against Absolute Goodness

Oxford University Press

This chapter explains why the author of this book doubts that we should respond affirmatively to the question with which the book began: “Are there things we should value because they are, quite simply, good?” Chapter 3 showed why it is reasonable to be tempted by a positive answer. Now it is time in this chapter to see why second thoughts are in order.
