Description

Answering the simplest questions satisfactorily often poses the greatest challenge and difficulty to philosophers. Since these questions concern principles underlying our everyday conduct, the inability to provide convincing answers can be exceedingly frustrating. When, during a career of teaching, John T Goldthwait was asked by his students "Why is that good?" - in regard to art and to conduct - he realised he had no answer that would satisfy his students and himself. And so, his effort to answer his students became a journey through the concept of value judgements, resulting in his book, "Value, Language, and Life". What is value? What makes things good? "Value, Language, and Life" presents a new answer to these age-old questions through Goldthwait's adaptation of linguistic analysis and phenomenological methodology. By examining our everyday experience and use of language, he arrives at a knowledge of value that can be applied in solving problems and reconciling disputes about value. This unique approach enables us to place ethics, aesthetics, and other fields in which value is prominent on a single foundation.
