Description

People tend to rank values of all kinds linearly from good to bad, but there is little reason to think that this is reasonable or correct. This book argues, to the contrary, that values are often partially ordered and hence frequently incomparable.



"This book is an outstanding contribution to the literature. Its combination of formal rigour and thoroughness with philosophical acumen is rare. This type of work is very much needed in axiology and ethics. The discussion of incomparable values in the book is by far the most detailed and precise to date. In addition, the book contains much material that should be of interest to axiologists, ethicists and decision theorists quite independently of its connections to value incomparability."Erik Carlson, Uppsala University, Sweden
