Quasi-realism is a framework for thinking about morality Show more
Not a lot of people have heard about quasi-realism.
Most of the ones that have think it's about "We have to act as if there are moral values, although there are none".
That's not it.
Quasi realism simply focuses on this: Some things are real, abstractions are not.
So QR focuses on individuals. Individuals exist. Individuals hold to moral values. Individuals speak about moral values. Individuals act on moral values.
That's all there is.
