Intrinsic and Extrinsic Value

Rønnow-Rasmussen, Toni LU (2015) In The Oxford Handbook of Value Theory
Abstract
The distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic value has given rise to a batch of fundamental questions concerning the very nature, importance and coherence of our core value concepts. Section I outlines an approach to the distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic value that has taxonomical advantages. Recent work has alerted us to the fact that the traditional way of explicating extrinsic value, as simply non-intrinsic value, leads to the conflation of a number of very different kinds of value. Section 2 contains a discussion of this debate about varieties of extrinsic value. Finally, Section 3 focuses on recent attacks on the very coherence of the intrinsic/extrinsic distinction and its role as a demarcation line between fundamental... (More)
