Abstract

This chapter defends the view that the most important normative notion is that of a reason, against John Broome’s claim that ought plays this role. The weight Broome places on the idea of explanation is criticized, as are his views on goodness and his interpretation of Sidgwick on the distinction between objective and subjective oughts.
