In this book Arto Laitinen studies and develops further Taylors philosophical views on human agency, personhood, selfhood and identity. He defends Taylors view that our ethical understandings of values (so called strong evaluations) play a central role. The book also develops and defends Taylors form of value realism as a view on the nature of ethical values, or values in general.
