With Skepticism in Ethics, Panayot Butchvarov joins a small group of practical philosophers who are attempting to define a third alternative to the two dominant approaches to practical philosophy in the twentieth century--the approach which puts practical philosophy on one or another model of empirical science and the approach which holds that practical philosophy is interpretive through and through.
