The Ideal Observer Theory and Motivational Internalism
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Philosophy.
2015 (English)In: Kriterion, ISSN 0100-512X, E-ISSN 1981-5336, Vol. 29, no 1, 79-97 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In this paper I show that one version of motivational internalism follows from the so-called ideal observer theory. Let us call the version of the ideal observer theory used in this essay (IOT). According to (IOT), it is necessarily the case that it ought to be that A if and only if every ideal observer wants it to be the case that A. We shall call the version of motivational internalism that follows from (IOT) (moral) conditional belief motivational internalism (CBMI). According to (CBMI), it is necessarily the case that, for every x: if x were an ideal observer, it would be the case that x believes that it ought to be that A only if x wants it to be the case that A. Given that it is necessarily true that no ideal observer has any false beliefs, (IOT) entails (CBMI). Or, so I shall argue.
