How to Keep Up Good Appearances: Desire, Imagination, and the Good

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
It is not uncommon to think that having a desire involves taking its object to be good in some sense. This idea has been developed in two directions: either toward a view that understands the positive evaluation in terms of a judgment or belief or a view according to which the relevant evaluation is perception-like. In this article, I defend a novel proposal that takes the positive evaluation of the object of desire to be a kind of imagining.
