This chapter explains how the account of norms for success in practical reason underwrite a conception of the metaphysics of value properties as response-dependent, along the lines suggested by John McDowell and David Wiggins. It considers the relation between reasons, ends, and values, and consider how response-dependent views of value properties have been developed by McDowell, Wiggins, and others before setting out a schema for understanding value as response-dependent given the account of practical rationality offered in this book.
