 Applying the View: Moral Truth

Show Summary Details

Preview

This book has argued that truth is a functional property that can be manifested differently in distinct domains of inquiry. This chapter looks at how truth is manifested in one such domain: our thoughts about morality. It argues that the truth of moral propositions is manifested by an epistemically constrained property — the property of concordance.

Keywords: cognitivism; moral propositions; morality; supercoherence; concordance; relativism
