Applies a result (usually favorable) to an activity e.g. learning (the activity) is valuable because of the outward effect on, for example, being better at one’s job and earning more money

  • Inherent Value

    Something that would be valuable even in the absence of outward effects e.g. knowledge is not inherently valuable—if a fact existed, but no one could ever access it, there is no value.
