« Naturalism and Normative Thought »
Normative thought seems rather important, even ineliminable. Communities that lack normative concepts like SHOULD, IS A REASON TO, JUSTIFIES, etc. seem to be missing something. And yet a popular metaethic, naturalism, entails that normative concepts and normative thinking is in principle eliminable. Here, I press this argument against naturalism, consider some replies by David Copp and Nicholas Laskowski, and suggest that a version of subjectivist naturalism does the best job preserving the importance and ineliminability of this special way of thinking.
