Abstract [en]

What is ultimately at stake in the metaethical controversies? What evidence are the various theories responsive to, and why? What is their scope, and what are they, more specifically, about? These questions are, in a wide sense, methodological, as they pertain to the issue of how to assess metaethical positions and theories.
