Moral epistemology is an area of metaethics that I feel most uneasy about. I’ve done the least research in this area, and I’m never quite happy with what I read. However, I have tried to get at least started. So, this post is a Groundwork to my moral epistemology (not that the presented view will be original). I want to start from Sidgwick’s intuitionist position as described by Roger Crisp in the section 3.4 of his book. Call this the ‘Crispwick’ view which I used to find very appealing. I will then explain why I have come to doubt this view, and why these doubts give me a reason to be drawn into a view which I call ‘Social Reliabilism’.
