Experientialism About Moral Concepts

Neil Sinhabubu (National University of Singapore)

Date: Tuesday, 16th of August
Time: 13:00 - 14:00
Venue: W6A 107, Macquarie University

ABSTRACT:  I present an experientialist account of moral concepts, on which moral judgments are beliefs about when moral feelings represent objective properties. For example, wrong actions are objectively represented by the feeling of guilt, while virtuous people are objectively represented by the feeling of admiration. This account fits into a cognitivist, externalist, and Humean picture of moral judgment. Within the framework of naturalistic moral realism, it provides new support for ethical hedonism.
