Some groundwork for a multidimensional axiology

By Alan Carter

Abstract

By distinguishing between contributory values and overall value, and byarguing that contributory values are variable values insofar as they contribute diminishing marginal overall value, this article helps to establish the superiority of a certain kind of maximizing, value-pluralist axiology over both sufficientarianism and prioritarianism, as well as over all varieties of value-monism, including utilitarianism and pure egalitarianism
