Liberal Arts Reading Group--April 12

At our last Liberal Arts Reading Group meeting, we discussed Chap. 5 of Michael Huemer's book titled Ethical Intuitionism. Here, Huemer claimed that moral knowledge is based on first intellectual appearances (otherwise known as intuitions). Importantly, he claimed that knowledge based on moral intuitions is no less objectively true than knowledge based on sensory perceptions.

One of the most common objections to his theory is this: Since people disagree about what is moral, morality is not objective. So let's plan to discuss
Chap. 6: Disagreement and Error when we get together this Friday.
