 Personal Evaluation

Show Summary Details

Preview

Personal evaluation leads to actions. Rawls' approach to personal evaluation is flawed. Internal and external evaluations are examined. Dominant activities are one's projects in life. The projects of Johnson's Swift and Gissing's Ryecroft are discussed. Projects can lead to good lives even if they do not succeed, because engagement in what one cares about is what matters.
