Value and time

Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses time and value. The two main questions are: What is the time of value? and What is the value of time? The first main question splits into two: Does what has value always have a temporal location? and Does value itself have temporal location? The second main question asks whether temporal features are evaluatively relevant. The features discussed are duration, temporal order (being before, simultaneous, after), life-periods (childhood, adulthood, old age), and tense (past, present, future). The kinds of value in focus are well-being (good for, bad for, better for), intrinsic value (i.e., value in virtue of intrinsic features), final value (which some think is different form intrinsic value), virtues, and moral value of persons.
