The author passes to and fro between problems of ethics, meta-ethics, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of logic and language.

The following themes are prominent: the elucidation of the ideas of truth, objectivity, subjectivity and intersubjectivity- the scope and limits of the attribution of the status of plain truth among the judgements of morals, politics and aesthetics- the compatibility of moral cognitivism both with criticism and with a no-foundations view of morals, politics and aesthetics- the part played in the fixation of the sense of evaluative language by the antecedent possibility of agreement not only in judgements but also (the Humean addendum) in sentiments- the philosophical ineliminability of explanations that explain a subjects thought by vindicating it, and the indispensability of evaluative and subjective categories to such vindications- and the irreplaceability and irreducibility for practical or valuational thinking of such ideas as those of need, self and metaphysical freedom.
