Why Philosophy Frightens…

Blurb from the latest Labyrinth Books sale catalog (#83) for the book Morality Without Foundations: A Defense of Ethical Contextualism by Mark Timmons:

Investigates fundamental metaethical questions about the meaning, truth, and justification of moral thought and discourse. Timmons maintains that all versions of descriptivism in ethics, particularly certain accounts of moral realism, fail. He argues instead that a correct metaethical theory must embrace some version of non-descriptivism.

Yup. That’ll bring ‘em in in droves.
