This chapter discusses Hume and whether one can find whether a moral judgment is to be identified with the judgment that an object is evoking in us a feeling of approval or disapproval. The discussion also talks about facts and norms. Dr. Popper’s distinction between norms and facts breaks down, along with an analogy between validity and truth.
