Riassunto: The aim of this book is to introduce the value-theory of John Niemeyer Findlay. He was a Platonist among Neopositivists, a very untypical analytical philosopher, one who loved Plato and Aristotle, Hegel and Husserl, Bretano and Meinong, and who was admitted to Wittgenstein's lessons and his Philosophical Investigations manuscript. Findlay's value-theory is part of a systematic thought, which explains reality in the light of a teleological point of view. From this perspective, Findlay tried to find a rational basis for objective values, that cannot be something we merely happen to like, but must be necessary. These values are ultimate ends which are founded on the urge of our consciousness to be impersonal, to free itself from whatever is personal and contingent. Impersonal ethics does not involve a set of objective rules. Rather, it is the acknowledgement of a field which is common to all men: this is the condition so that there is an essential "we", which do not impose rules, but which find them inside the nature of conscious being.
