The argument for the core argument's first premise comes in two stages. This chapter presents the first stage of the argument. Its aim is threefold: first, to identify the character of epistemic realism of a paradigmatic sort; second, to point out four relevant similarities between epistemic and moral facts; and, third, to reply to several objections to the effect that there are important and deep dissimilarities between epistemic and moral facts.

Keywords:   deontic facts, evaluative facts, epistemic facts, moral facts, alethic thesis, ontic thesis, speech act thesis
