The true locus of value is either in the world or in the mind. However, this choice seems to be predicated on a more basic division of reality into selfcontained minds and worlds external to those minds. If reality turns out not to be this way, then the axiological choice between inside and outside may turn out to be a false choice. If so, meta-ethical theories of the nature of value may have to be seriously revised or even abandoned. Conclusion The Cartesian conception of the mind is made up of three broad strands: ontological, epistemological and axiological.
It is arguable that this is Kants position in the B edition Refutation of Idealism, where Kants idealism seems to be at its most attenuated. The problem with this sensible view, however, is that it contradicts most of Kants formulations (including, notably, the A edition Refutation of Idealism). 8 If sensible intuition and understanding simply restrict our experience to a subset of properties, rather than construct such properties by way of intuition and understanding, then such properties would exist independently of intuition and understanding.
Suppose we accept the idea of the mind as an ontic and epistemic interiority, contained within the subject of mental phenomena. Then everything that does not lie within the boundaries of this subject the external world broadly understood is outside the mind. This external world, however, is a locus, or apparent locus, of value. Some of the things that happen in it are good, some bad, some right, some wrong, and some none of these things. If we enquire into the source of this value, however, the Cartesian conception of the mind gives us a simple choice.
