This chapter discusses the relationships view about reasons of partiality. According to the relationships view, special relationships carry ethical significance in their own rights, and this ethical significance explains why relationships are sources of special reasons. Where the projects view finds the ground of your reasons of partiality in you, the relationships view finds the ground of your reasons of partiality in your relationships. There are several different versions of the relationships view. The most significant distinction among them is between those that begin with a claim about value or valuing, on the one side, and those that go straight to a claim about reasons, on the other. Most of this chapter focuses on the value-based relationships view.
