This chapter argues for the existence of three discontinuities between normative and non-normative thought and discourse, which put pressure on certain otherwise tempting meta-normative theories. In particular, it argues that that normative thought and discourse are action-guiding, affective, and acrimonious. These three discontinuities provide a powerful case for a departure from familiar ‘externalist’ cognitivist models which eschew any essential link between normative judgment and motivation.
