In this journal editorial, the author introduces the first debate to occur in the Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology during his tenure as editor. Three interlocutors take on Daniel N. Robinson in a debate that focuses upon Praise and Blame, Robinson's erudite and spirited defense of moral realism. Robinson replies to each response to his work. The exchange encompasses the question of the status of ethical concepts as well as that of ultimate nature of morality. When Professor Robinson engages this estimable ensemble, we are granted an instructive tour of the ethical landscape. In explicating and defending moral realism, Professor Robinson sketches what is required if one is to hold a non-relativistic view of morals. We also are reminded, as the debate unfolds, just how difficult ethical questions are to settle. 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
