What Relations Can Hold among Goals, and Why Does It Matter? (¿Qué relaciones se sostienen entre metas y por qué esto importa?)

Critica 41 (121):47 - 66 (2009)
Goals are often set as part of clusters of goals. On the assumption that goals are set because we want to achieve them it is interesting to study not only the conditions under which individual goals are rational (functional) but also the factors that combine to determine the rationality of a goal system. This paper argues that to be rational goal systems ought to be coherent, at least to some degree. The paper provides an analysis of goal system coherence and discusses to what extent goal conflicts are problematic from an action-guiding viewpoint. /// Muchas veces las metas se fijan como parte de grupos de metas. Bajo el supuesto de que las metas se fijan porque queremos lograrlas, resulta interesante estudiar no sólo las condiciones en las que cada meta es racional (funcional), sino también los factores que se combinan para determinar la racionalidad de un sistema de metas. Este trabajo argumenta que, para ser racionales, los sistemas de metas deben ser coherentes, o al menos deben serlo hasta cierto punto. El artículo ofrece un análisis de la coherencia de un sistema de metas y discute en qué grado los conflictos de metas son problemáticos desde el punto de vista de guiar la acción.
