25 Some Results of Cairns's Investigations Into the Affective and Conative LESTER EMBREE I was glad to be asked to speak about my teacher's contributions in theory of value and theoretical ethics because I heard some of his more recent lectures under these titles and because his influence on me has been greatest through those lectures. However, since there is not sufficient time on this occasion for a balanced survey of Dorion Cairns's results in axiology and ethics, I shall emphasize his descriptive work on the affective and conative, which is the foundation of those normative disciplines.
