|Abstract||Practical equilibrium, like reflective equilibrium, is a way of deciding what to think about morality. It shares with reflective equilibrium the general thesis that there is some way in which a moral theory must, in order to be acceptable, answer to one's moral intuitions, but it differs from reflective equilibrium in its specification of exactly how a moral theory must answer to one's intuitions. Whereas reflective equilibrium focuses on a theory's consistency with those intuitions, practical equilibrium also gives weight to a theory's approval of one's having those intuitions|
