Douglas Rasmussen is a professor of philosophy at St. John’s University. In this lecture given at an International Society for Individual Liberty conference in 1991, he introduces subjective value to the general concept of human flourishing. He references F.A. Hayek’s article “The Use of Knowledge in Society” to make the argument that a familiarity with and respect for concrete particular knowledge is necessary not only for market economies to emerge but is also important when applied to the human matrix of decision-making for leading a moral and fulfilled life. Basically, each individual and each individual alone has the particularized local knowledge to make the determinations about which proportions of competing value classes will lead to fulfillment in their lives; thus there is no ‘one size fits all’ standard of happiness that can be provided by prescriptive institutions.

Down syndrome is a genetic condition in which a person has 47 chromosomes instead of the usual 46. The most common form of Down syndrome is Trisomy 21, in which a person has an extra copy of chromosome 21. This extra chromosome results in problems with how the brain and body develop. The developmental problems often do manifest themselves as mild retardation, that is not exactly what “retarded” means.
