Philosophy and Theology 30 (2):321-331 (2018)

Abstract
Where does value come from? How does it continue in existence? Can it disappear? In this paper I argue, in a direction suggested by Sartre and Heidegger, that value is an objective feature of reality which exists because of choices made by conscious beings. Specifically, I argue that both the existence of correctness and the existence of goodness rest on types of choosing—choosing to do and choosing to care, respectively.
