Abstract [en]

The author argues that moral truth is best understood as a combination of actual linguistic self-evidence and coherence, and that reasons for thinking that a moral conviction is either self-evident, or part of a coherent set of moral ideas in which at least some are linguistically self-evident, ought to be seen as evidence of truth. The conception of linguistic self-evidence, which is of crucial importance for the argument, is developed in the first part of the article.
