Reflections on answering moral realism in LD/Policy Debate

  • I would suggest this is a form of scientism applied to philosophy.
  • As I understand it the postitivists have been discredited.
  • I would think that Haidt would be an internal answer.
  • Natural law
  • Science has a framework for theories which have practical value, even though their truth claims aren’t fully proven.

I think a direct comparison between the ethical systems we use or you use in your aff vs. this one shouldn’t be all that difficult.

Being able to defend life good and/or dehumanization bad isn’t that challenging of an argument.

I would imagine that a number of ethical realists are utilitarians.  Either impact turn that….or claim thats what you are.
