Blackburn reads Parfit

Here

Blackburn, too, is unimpressed (here is another underwhelmed reviewer).  I haven’t read this particular iteration of Parfit’s view yet, but from what I have previously, I give him credit for his ‘quietism’.  If your are going to be a normative realist (in the philosophical sense of that term), then own up to the fact that you will never say anything intelligible about normativity (that couldn’t be wholly repeated by an irrealist).
