It is argued in this chapter that various moral sentiments, such as forgiveness, guilt, and indignation are essentially associated with objective reasons. It is also proposed that the truth of certain judgments concerning happiness as well as the truth of a number of virtue judgments is also essentially linked to our having objective reasons, and, thus, to our having alternatives.
