Abstract

The value of trying is various and complex, yielding reasons to try to do numerous different things in diverse contexts. Demonstrating this richness, I draw on cultural insights and on examples from everyday life, with a special focus on the law and on morality. The paper builds on the work of John Gardner, who has done more than anyone to further our understanding of reasons to try.

Keywords: reasons; value theory; reasons to try
