TOMASINI BASSOLS, Alejandro. Ortiz-Millán and Duties to Oneself. Diánoia [online]. 2008, vol.53, n.60, pp.167-174. ISSN 0185-2450.

In this note I argue against the very idea that it makes sense to talk about morality with respect to oneself, a view that Ortiz-Millán advocates. I hold that the motivation of anything one does for oneself is always prudential in character or based on self-interest considerations and that the moral dimension of human life always concerns "the other" and not oneself.

Keywords : obligation; punishment; morality; myself.
