主要内容:

Recently several prestigious moral philosophers have been proposing a soft version of moral realism, according to which moral facts—though it is reasonable to postulate them—cannot play explanatory roles in other domains (Dworkin 2011; Parfit 2011;

Scanlon 2014). However, soft moral realism is faced with what I call the Hard Problem,namely, the problem of how soften moral metaphysics could accommodate moral knowledge. This paper reconstructs three responses to the Hard Problem on behalf of the soft realist: the autonomy response, the intuitionist response, and the third-factor response. Then I argue that none of them is successful.
