Abstract [en]

There have been many attempts to define the monadic value properties of intrinsic or final goodness and badness in terms of the dyadic betterness relation. By reducing the number of primitive concepts, such definitions would, if possible, be desirable for reasons of theoretical simplicity. Johan Gustafsson has recently argued, however, that no such definitions can succeed.1 I shall suggest definitions that avoid Gustafsson's objections, and have the further advantage of being more generally applicable than earlier proposals.
