In this episode, we dive into the deep waters of moral skepticism, questioning the existence and knowability of moral truths. From the argument from disagreement to Mackie's argument from queerness, we explore the compelling cases for skepticism. However, the journey doesn't end there. We also consider the resilient defenses against skepticism, such as common sense realism and the practical necessity of morality. Join us on this philosophical voyage as we challenge our moral convictions and deepen our understanding of moral philosophy.
