The Error In 'The Error In The Error Theory'

Australasian Journal of Philosophy 89 (3):519-534 (2011)
Abstract
In his paper ?The Error in the Error Theory?[this journal, 2008], Stephen Finlay attempts to show that the moral error theorist has not only failed to prove his case, but that the error theory is in fact false. This paper rebuts Finlay's arguments, criticizes his positive theory, and clarifies the error-theoretic position
