Example text

For present purposes, I shall take moral naturalism to be the view, roughly, that moral truth can be given a naturalistic explanation. Non-naturalism denies that moral truth can be given a naturalistic explanation. For present purposes, we can take it that a naturalistic explanation of moral truth would be an “empirical” explanation. A naturalist might say, for example, that moral properties such as rightness and wrongness, goodness and badness, are “nothing but” empirical properties, that moral claims ascribe empirical properties.

It doesn’t follow, however, that no question about what exists is factual or that all questions about what exists are empty in the way that Putnam thinks the question whether mereological sums exist is empty. It doesn’t follow, for example, that atheism is false or that it is an empty thesis, nor does it follow that energy is irreducible (139 n. 1). So it doesn’t follow that all forms of eliminationism and reductionism must be abandoned. The most that follows, it seems to me, is that, to avoid error, Ontologizing needs to bear in mind the complications of conceptual pluralism and conceptual relativity.
