Base property exemplification and mixed worlds: Remarks on the Shafer-landau/mabrito exchange

Philosophical Studies 138 (3):429-434 (2008)
In this essay I distinguish between a synchronic view of base property exemplification and a diachronic one. I argue that only a diachronic view of base property exemplification can substantiate a ban on morally mixed worlds. I then argue that one of Robert Mabrito’s recent criticisms of Russ Shafer-Landau’s moral realism fails on either a synchronic or a diachronic view.
