Revelatory Regret and the Standpoint of the Agent
Philosophy, Revelatory Regret, Agent, regret
The idea of living with no regrets has found such broad popular appeal that it is often cliché. Regret has been put to various but often related philosophical ends by thinkers as diverse as Friedrich Nietzsche, William James, and more recently, Michael Bratman and R. Jay Wallace.1 We can experience regret as we look back on our lives and we can anticipate regret for actions, whether in the past, present, or future.2
