Abstract [en]

In a recent article – ‘The Right Kind of Solution to the Wrong Kind of Reason Problem’ – Gerald Lang suggests a solution to the so called ‘wrong kind of reason problem’ (the WKR problem) for T. M. Scanlon’s buck-passing account of value. In two separate replies to Lang, Jonas Olson and John Brunero, respectively, point out serious problems with Lang’s suggestion, and at least Olson concludes that the kind of solution that Lang opts for is the wrong kind of solution to the WKR problem. I argue that while both Olson and Brunero have indeed identified considerable flaws in Lang’s particular suggestion for solution to the WKR problem, they have not provided sufficient grounds for dismissing the kind of solution that Lang opts for. I show how a version of this kind ofsolution can be formulated so as to avoid both Olson’s and Brunero’s objections.
