He knows well that he will not be able to repay it...

In a wider context, a pluralism of values must be acknowledged that does not allow a simple harmony among them or permit the realization of them all simultaneously in absolute fashion. Lord Keynes and the Bloomsbury group are instanced in support of this contention. Metaethics examines the nature of moral claims and arguments.
