What is the nature of normativity? What is the relation between normative facts, e.g. moral facts, and non-normative facts, e.g. facts about our psychology? Can normative facts be reduced to non-normative facts? Do they supervene on them? Does the non-normative ground the normative? These are all questions in the metaphysics of normativity, and this workshop wants to discuss them with an eye to the philosophical tradition - since we believe that the philosophical tradition can not only help us to answer such questions, but also to rethink some of the unquestioned assumptions of the relevant debates.
