Is quasi-realism queasy realism?
Prof. Blackburn will be covering: Its rivals: real realism, and non metaphysical cognitivism (Parfit). Its explanatory advantages, and its situation in the wider pragmatist tradition of Wittgenstein and Sellars.
Preliminary reading: none required. Browsing in his Essays in Quasi-Realism or Allan Gibbard’s book Wise Choices; Apt Feelings might lay some ground.
