Moral Explanation and Moral Objectivity [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 58 (1):175-182 (1998)
|Abstract||What is the real issue at stake in discussions of "moral explanation"? There isn't one; there are many. The standing of purported moral properties and problems about our epistemic or semantic access to them are of concern both from within and without moral practice. An account of their potential contribution to explaining our values, beliefs, conduct, practices, etc. can help in these respects. By examining some claims made about moral explanation in Judith Thompson's and Gilbert Harman's Moral Relativism and Moral Objectivity, I try to suggest a worthwhile account of this potential explanatory contribution|
