Philosophical Papers 34 (3):429-442 (2005)
|Abstract||In this paper I present a novel account of achievement and I argue that, all other things being equal, the presence of this particular type of achievement (an ‘m-achievement’) in a person’s life makes that life more meaningful. In arguing for this conclusion, I explore the connections between m-achievements and a person’s self-conception and especially the idea that m-achievements provide a reason for the revision of one’s self-conception.|
