reflective self-evaluationreflektierende Selbstbewertung (ger.)

  • Self-evaluation: Appraisal of one's actions or attitudes, esp. in relation to an objective standard. (OED 2012)

    Many animals appear to have the capacity for what I shall call “first-order desires” or “desires of the first order,” which are simply desires to do or not to do one thing or another. No animal other than man, however, appears to have the capacity for reflective self-evaluation that is manifested in the formation of second-order desires.
