KALDERON, M. E.,
Clarendon Press, 2005. 206p. Hardback. Series: Lines of Thought. Do we really believe the moral claims we make, or are we just pretending? In likely the most provocative metaethical book of 2005, Mark Eli Kalderon argues for hermeneutical moral fictionalism: our ordinary practice of moral judgement involves a form of make-believe rather than genuine belief ... It is an important original contribution that should be read by all scholars and advanced students of metaethics, and will be of interest to those engaged in parallel debates in other areas of philosophy ... I admire the book greatly ... for its bold originality and creativity, its attention to detail, and its clear argument. It will deservedly invigorate the metaethical debate for some time to come.
