Placing the buck where it belongs: non-comparative value of individuals
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Philosophy and Linguistics.
2005 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This essay disputes the attempt to reduce value to normative reason for fitting reactions, the so-called buck-passing account of value, mainly founded on Thomas Scanlon’s work. Using Scanlon’s contractual ethics as example it argues that the assumption of non-reducible value is defensible when morally structuring superior values are considered, namely superordinate values and what is called a ‘master value’. Since the point of the metaphor of buck-passing is to indicate the responsible dealer in a game, the buck would seem rightly to belong to the latter in the “game” of ethics.
