Ethical Naturalism

Naturalism = the idea that moral values can be correctly defined by obsevation of the natural world

Moral Realist = belief that right and wrong actually exist

Cognitivism = belief that moral statements are either true of false

Ethical Naturalists believe you can know morals through observation of the world, which in turn makes them moral realists as they believe that moral truths (right and wrong) exist. They are also cognitivists, believing moral statements can be proven either true or false.

Versions of Ethical Naturalism:

Thomas Aquinas - NML so God-given order in nature

F.H. Bradley
