Charles Taylor lecture series – Philip Pettit lecture Part Two : ‘Values’
September 20, 2019 @ 16:00 - 18:00
Values are properties that are apt, like any desiderata, to trigger desire but are also fit in a special way to trigger it: they can vindicate as well as explain. It turns out that persons must treat various properties as values—deep values, as Charles Taylor puts it—if they are to personate. And it transpires in addition that they are constitutively required, in whatever cultural mode, to recognize the values of autonomy, respect and freedom.
