Hypatia 17 (1):156-173 (2002)

: Naturalized moral epistemology eschews practices of assuming to know a priori the nature of situations and experiences that require moral deliberation.

Yet according experience so central a place in inquiry risks "naturalizing" it, treating it as incontestable, separating its moral and political dimensions. This essay discusses these issues with reference to Margaret Walker's Moral understandings
