Chauncey Stillman Professor of Practical Ethics

Ethical Intuitions & their Reliability

Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and Matt Bedke consider the extent to which we can justifiably trust our moral intuitions. They discuss the analogy between ethical intuitions and color perceptions (2:55), a potential difference between ethical intuitions and non-ethical philosophical intuitions (19:45), Sinnott-Armstrong's work on framing effects (27:11), and Bedke's critique of non-naturalist ethical intuitionism (60:44), among other topics, including the notion of justification (foundationalism versus coherentism).
