David Berlinski Quotes: If Moral Statements Are About Something

If Moral Statements Are About Something, Then The Universe Is Not Quite As Science Suggests It Is, Since Physical Theories, Having Said Nothing About God, Say Nothing About Right Or Wrong, Good Or Bad. To Admit This Would Force Philosophers To Confront The Possibility That The Physical Sciences Offer A Grossly Inadequate View Of Reality. And Since Philosophers Very Much Wish To Think Of Themselves As Scientists, This Would Offer Them An Unattractive Choice Between Changing Their Allegiances Or Accepting Their Irrelevance.
