Aspiration: The Agency of Becoming

New York: Oup Usa (2018)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Aspiration by Agnes Callard locates standing assumptions in the theory of rationality, moral psychology and autonomy that preclude the possibility of working to acquire new values. The book also explains what changes need to be made if we are to make room for this form of agency, which I call aspiration.
