Sunday Lecture: Naturalism and the Moral Ought

Catherine Wilson explores some strategies for defending moral objectivity from a naturalistic perspective.

How can an anthropological view of morality as a set of norms that arise spontaneously and vary from culture to culture be reconciled with the philosophical view that there are moral truths and moral errors? Some have argued that the notion of an objective moral ought in the absence of a supernatural moral lawgiver is incoherent. This talk will examine how to rebut such claims.

Catherine Wilson is Regious Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen.
