Annotations on the Philosophy of Values


Carlos J. Ramos-Mattei

Through notes, reflections, and arguments on valuing and objective estimation, Carlos Ramos-Mattei examines the experience of valuing and intersubjectivity, based on a phenomenological analysis. In considering the feeling for a scale of values and a critical discernment of an ontology of values, Dr. Ramos-Mattei draws a parallel between ordinary reasoning and the deliberation of values. In the second section of the book he discusses the role of reason and valuing for a more democratic society. Topics on justice, law, natural law, the value of the human person, ethics, political activity, ecological responsibility, and religious experience are explored.
