The paper considers some questions arising out of reflection on Finnis's writings about value, exemplifying them by consideration of the putative value of knowledge. They include the role of harmony, and of self-evidence, in identifying or constituting values, and the ways in which values can provide reasons.
Keywords: value, harmony, self-evidence, identity of a value, value of knowledge, J.M. Finnis
