The question of what an agent has reason to act on is approached via the question of what it is that an agent values. The distinction between acting for moral versus non‐moral reasons is argued to be obscure and not overly helpful. What we should attempt to demonstrate is the relations between the reasons that agents standardly act on. By taking this approach, we find that we no longer feel the need to advance a defence of moral reasons as categorical reasons for action.
