More to come on this topic. For the moment, I just want to draw attention to this piece by Yale-based philosopher Joel Marks in which he describes how he came to be a philosophical amoralist (along the lines of Richard Garner).
Jerry Coyne and Jean Kazez have both commented on the piece rather critically (the former some time ago now). As you might expect, I'll be (essentially) defending Marks. However, the two critical posts that I've linked are well worth reading and discussing.
More tomorrow, but feel free to get some discussion going.
Note: I'm going to take off moderation for now, except on old threads, and see what happens - whether the spam level is deal-withable. As James Sweet suggested in a thread yesterday, things are now more manageable for us all without David Mabus annoying us. I'll enable the word recognition thingie to see if it weeds some rubbish out.
