Science and ethics: Toward a theory of ethical value [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Journal for General Philosophy of Science 25 (2):279 - 292 (1994)
|Abstract||This article sketches descriptive and normative components of a theory of ethical value. The normative component, which receives the lion’s share of attention, is developed by adapting Laudan’s levels of scientific discourse. The resulting levels of ethical discourse can be critically addressed through the use of inductive inference, falsification, and causal inference. These techniques are likewise appropriate to the corresponding levels of scientific discourse.|
