This chapter specifies the character of moral realism of a paradigmatic sort, which is the position for which the book argues. It argues that realism of this sort is comprised of three theses: first, a claim regarding the character of moral discourse; second, a claim regarding the nature of moral truth; and, third, a claim about the nature of moral facts. According to the type of realism in question, moral facts ‘irreducibly exist’. That is the heart of the realist position.

Keywords:   moral discourse, commonsensical conception, explanatory constraint, alethic thesis, ontic thesis, speech act thesis
