Exploring Transitivity

Exploring Transitivity

Part I

(p.162) 6 Exploring Transitivity
Rethinking the Good

Larry S. Temkin

Oxford University Press

This chapter continues the exploration of transitivity by assessing the nature of two other normative relations, the permissibility relation “is permissible to do rather than,” and the obligatoriness relation “ought to be done rather than.” It then identifies the factors that ultimately determine whether or not “all-things-considered better than” (in this book's wide reason-implying sense) is, in fact, a transitive relation.

Keywords:   normative relations, permissibility relation, obligatoriness relation, all-things-considered better than, transitive relations
