  • Metaphysics of Normativity.Pedro S. Williams - unknown

Such an accomplishment is attempted by the joining in conversation of two bodies of literature.

This paper shows that this reading of the method of avoidance is incorrect and argues that the method of avoidance is in fact comparable to Carnap's higher-order standpoint of neutrality with regards to different frameworks. This (...)
