Abstract: Expressivists have long argued that cognitivist accounts of normative judgments cannot adequately explain their distinctive action-guiding and motivational role. Recently, they have been joined by a growing contingent of hybrid theorists who contend that a defensible account of normative judgment should construe simple normative assertions as expressing both a belief and a desire-like attitude. In this paper, we argue that a more careful characterization of the conceptual structure of normative judgments provides the resources to explain their link to motivation without hybridization.
