Moral Relativism, round 2

This meetup is a second go at the Boghossian article, a short opinion piece from the New York Times philosophy blog The Stone. I've chosen one and one article only, for the purpose of focused, close reading. Further, the article is an opinion piece, it's making an argument.

While reading the article try looking for a thesis, argument, and the premises upon which the argument rests. Do you agree with Boghossian's thesis? Does he give a good argument? Can his argument be improved? Do his definitions and premises adequately and accurately capture our intuitions?

Enjoy and see you all Sunday.

    I may still be there, but didn't want to take up a spot on the list since I'm a "maybe".
