In his book, Moral realism and The Foundations of Ethics , David O. Brink , claims the IS-Ought Gap is neutral to Moral Realism and thus to Moral Objectivity. In this chapter [6] I shall examine possible rebuttals based on arguments for and from the existence of an is/ought gap. Most discussions of ...

Re: What causes muslims to be violent

Immanuel Can wrote: Good is recognised by comparative absence of evil. It's the opposite. Evil is the corruption or destruction of the good. Yes I think so. But we find it easier to recognise evil when it happens. I don't know why. You see it in the media. Evil sells better than good. All humans ar...

Re: Moral Realism is the Default Within Morality

Upon presenting his arguments why Moral Realism is the Default within Morality, he commented the following; If my argument has been correct, general considerations about the nature of inquiry and considerations about moral inquiry in particular are most easily explained on the assumption that moral ...

Moral Realism is the Default Within Morality

Here is what David Brink in Moral realism and The Foundations of Ethics wrote: The preceding section has given us some idea of what Moral realism is, what it is not, and what its main rivals are. But what interest do these metaethical views hold, and is there any reason to believe one rather than an...

Re: Moral Supervenience

Yes, playing checkers itself is not an issue within the domain of morality and ethics. If you research and exhaust all that is written about morality & ethics, you will never find 'playing checkers' itself as an issue within morality. If anyone cheated during the games of checker, the moral issue i...

Re: Is There a Definitive Definition of Morality?

Veritas; I don't necessarily agree. Terms like eudaimonia, or well being, or human flourishing, or health are somewhat umbrella terms with no precise definitions and our understanding of such terms are subject to change. That being said, that doesn't make them vacuous or without content. Once we ag...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Moral relativism isn't necessarily to do with groups. And moral subjectivism isn't necessarily to do with individuals. And I've explained why the cognitivist/non-cognitivist distinction can confuse the issue with regard to moral objectivism. But, hey. Why bother with the actual facts and argument, ...
