Topic areas


In this second seminar in the series, I will examine various forms of "Constructivism," which reject Subjectivism but attempts to avoid moral realism, by seeing morality as a human construction. Two versions will be looked at: Christine Korsgaard's Kantian-inspired version and various social contract versions. I shall argue that such views do not attain genuine objectivity without covert appeals to moral realism.
