Brutalist non-naturalism and Hume's principle

Zangwill, Nick


Nick Zangwill


Does moral non-naturalism have a problem with supervenience? That is, are necessary relations between moral and natural properties mysterious if those properties are distinct? Here I try to remove anxiety about the modal comments of moral non-naturalism. I also want to understand the source of the anxiety for those afflicted by it. That source is a commitment to what is called ‘Hume’s Principle’. I attack that principle.
