Chapter 17 shows how reason relations differ from other relations in ways that can be summarised by saying that, unlike these other relations, reason relations are irreal. It also endorses a ‘minimalist’ account of truth. It then argues that there is no reason to hold a non‐cognitivist view of the normative.

Keywords: existence; actuality; semantic condition; causal condition; truth; irreal; non‐cognitivism
