On an Apparent Asymmetry in Attitude Desert

Alm, David LU (2007) In Hommage à Wlodek: Philosophical Papers Dedicated to Wlodek Rabinowicz
Abstract
It is possible for persons to deserve evaluative attitudes such as admiration and disdain. There is an apparent asymmetry between positive and negative attitudes, however. While the latter appear to be subject to what I will call a "control requirement," the former do not appear to be so subject. I attempt to explain away this asymmetry by appeal to pragmatic factors
