1 Ethics on a naturalistic basis The concept of naturalism in ethics has often been regarded with rather skeptical eyes, as the term ‘ethical naturalism’ has been used by G. E. Moore and others for an approach that tries to derive, falsely, norms from facts (the so-called ‘naturalistic fallacy’). This is, however, not at all what we have in mind when talking about naturalism in ethics. First and foremost, we do not employ the term ‘ethical naturalism’ for the conception advocated here, but rather, in a weaker sense, we speak of an ethics on a naturalistic basis.

A couple of thousand years later, we’re still kicking around versions of a question from Euthyphro: Is an action good because the gods love it, or do the gods love it because it’s good? You could 22 Kwame Anthony Appiah say – it has been said – that science is the ‘successful’ part of philosophy, ‘philosophy’ the remains. But there’s a reason that we’re having the same debates: it’s that these are stories about us. The other methods of inquiry, when they came of age, left the family and lighted out on their own.
