Book description

This Handbook surveys the contemporary state of the burgeoning field of metaethics. Forty-three chapters, all written exclusively for this volume, provide expert introductions to:

    • the central research programs that frame metaethical discussions
    • the central explanatory challenges, resources, and strategies that inform contemporary work in those research programs
    • debates over the status of metaethics, and the appropriate methods to use in metaethical inquiry

This is essential reading for anyone with a serious interest in metaethics, from those coming to it for the first time to those actively pursuing research in the field.
