Senior Literature Review Fall 2018

Oscar’s Research Presentation


Oscar walked us through his research on the fact-value distinction and Moore’s criticism of ethical naturalism.

One thing our discussion revealed is that the connection between Hume’s famous claim about the gap between “is” and “ought” and Moore’s open question argument against naturalism is harder to explain than you would think. This is pertinent to Oscar’s review because it is not always clear which one is the target of the different authors he is reading.
