This chapter considers an argument that Prichard levels against Sidgwick. Prichard says that Sidgwick's view is that nobody has ever been an intuitionist, but then argues that nobody has ever been a non‐intuitionist (or consequentialist). The chapter argues that though Prichard is wrong in the way in which he characterizes Sidgwick's views, he is still right on the substantive points.

Keywords: Sidgwick; Prichard; intuitionist; consequentialist
