David Sobel (Syracuse): The Case for Stance-Dependent Value

The Case for Stance-Dependent Value

Having a contingent favoring attitude or stance toward something, even when one has no reason to have that favoring attitude, such as a preference for Lagavulin over Talisker or flannel jammies over cotton, can give one reason to choose (and ground a well-being benefit in) what one so favors over the alternative, at least in matters of mere taste. Our favoring attitudes can ground some reasons.
