This workshop will explore new versions of normative naturalism that have been proposed in recent years, innovative arguments for or against naturalism, and new ways of understanding the divide between naturalism and non-naturalism in metaethics.

The workshop is organized in connection with the project “Expressivism and Normative Realism”, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 837036.

The workshop will take place on Zoom. A link to the Zoom meeting will be sent to all registered participants a few days before the workshop.

Registration is free but required. In order to register, please email Camil Golub at [email protected] by July 1st, 2021.
