Overview

"Moral Realism is a systematic defence of the idea that there are objective moral standards. In the tradition of Plato and G. E. Moore, Russ Shafer-Landau argues that there are moral principles that are true independently of what anyone, anywhere, happens to think of them." Moral Realism is the first comprehensive treatise defending non-naturalistic moral realism in over a generation. It ranges over all the central issues in contemporary metaethics, and will be an important source of discussion for philosophers and their students interested in issues concerning the foundations of ethics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A book of remarkable scope and ambition...clear and engaging throughout...[Shafer-Landau] develops a number of novel arguments for what is sure to be a controversial set of mutually supporting and philosophically interesting positions...very much worth reading. It is also accessible and engaging enough to be useful for teaching advanced undergraduates."—Michael Ridge, Australasian Journal of Philosophy
