The Locative Analysis of Good For Formulated and Defended

by Guy Fletcher

THE STRUCTURE OF THIS PAPER IS AS FOLLOWS. I begin
§1 by dealing with preliminary issues such as the different relations
expressed by the “good for” locution. I then (§2) outline the
Locative Analysis of good for and explain its main elements before moving
on to (§3) outlining and discussing the positive features of the view. In
the subsequent sections I show how the Locative Analysis can respond to
objections from, or inspired by, Sumner (§4-5), Regan (§6), and Schroeder
and Feldman (§7). I then (§8) reply to an imagined objector who claims
that the Locative Analysis generates implausible results with respect to
punishment, virtue and agent-centered duties.
