Are There Objective Values?

The Dalhousie Review 79 (3):301-317 (1999)
Abstract
In this paper I demolish three influential arguments - moral, metaphysical and epistemological - against value realism. We have good reasons to believe, and no good reasons not to believe, that value-features, value-facts, really do exist in the world.
