In Defense of Moral Error Theory

Chapter
Part of the New Waves in Philosophy book series (NWIP)

Abstract

My aim in this essay is largely defensive. I aim to discuss some problems for moral error theory and to offer plausible solutions. A full positive defense of moral error theory would require substantial investigations of rival metaethical views, but that is beyond the scope of this essay. I will, however, try to motivate moral error theory and to clarify its commitments.
