This chapter covers normativism, which attempts to derive moral conclusions from normative but non-moral premises. One version refers to moral explanations, another version includes contractarianism and contractualism, which justifies moral beliefs by reference to contractors who are rational, impartial, and/or reasonable. Neither version can solve the skeptical regress problem.
