What is Logical Monism?


Logical monism is the view that there is 'one true logic'. But what does that mean? In this talk, I argue that, unless logical monism is merely a thesis about natural language semantics, without any methodological import, it could only mean something non-factual. In particular, logical, scientific, and metaphysical explications of the thesis do not stand up to scrutiny. I conclude that monism about normative areas quite generally, whether moral, epistemic, or 'all-things-considered', is best understood as an admonition. Use one normative system!
