I will be presenting my paper, “Objective Purposiveness and Extrinsic Final Value”, at the Biennial Meeting of the North American Kant Society in March 2023, in Mexico City.

Here is the abstract: This paper proposes an alternative Kantian approach to extrinsic final value, namely the value we attribute to an object for its own sake due to its extrinsic features. Then it explores the merits of the approach in relation to extant views, Christine Korsgaard’s and Wlodek Rabinowicz and Toni Rønnow-Rasmussen’s.

Here is the handout.
