Human Predicament and Dimensions of Values

Ansuman Khataniar.

Abstract
The concept of value belongs to a network and hence it is not possible to give an independent definition of it by
placing it under a genus. Evaluation is a process and it implies a heuristic goal. Values come into being through
interpretation. In the end and means dichotomy values are ends. An experience or a state of affairs that is cherished
by us for its own sake may be regarded as a value. Values have certain universal features and these universal
features arise out of the human encounter with the world and hence there may be some biological aspect of human
values. Alternatively we may try to place values in the cognitive cartography. But it is not possible to find out a
secure foundational proposition from which values may be deduced. Values reveal through the human mind. Our
world is an experienced world and hence values exist in the experienced world. The interpretative act plays a
significant role in the process of production of values. Values are supervenient in the sense that they exist always in
relation to something else. If values are not already hidden in the things that we experience then no amount of
interpretative act can bring values to being. So values clearly have object aspect, the aspect in which it remains
hidden and an interpretative aspect through which it is brought to focus.

Key words: Cognitive Cartography, Engagement, Speciecism, Interpretative Act.
