Objective list theory

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract / Description of output

Prudential value, in contrast with aesthetic value or moral value, is the value that something has when it contributes to well-being, or when it is good for a welfare subject (an entity with a level of well-being). The objective list theory of well-being holds that prudential value is attitude-independent and capable of no further substantive explanation. This is typically combined with pluralism about prudential value.
