Moral Realism

Russ Shafer-Landau (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Addresses two outstanding worries about ethical non‐naturalism. The first, developed primarily by Simon Blackburn, is that this form of moral realism cannot provide an adequate account of the supervenience of the moral upon the non‐moral. The second, prompted by Gilbert Harman, is that moral facts lack any independent causal power, and so we have excellent reason to regard them as unreal.

Keywords:   Simon Blackburn, causal power, causation, Gilbert Harman, supervenience
