Just curious what your thoughts are on Nihilism. And yes there are different types of nihilism. But, I don't really care which one you are interested in. I'll give you an example of a nihilistic argument. (1) There is an is and ought gap (2) Nothing will fill this gap. ---------------------------------------------- (3) There is no such thing as morals Backup for (1) There is a difference between the state of affairs that exist for things that we call moral or immoral and the justification for why it is moral. Morality does not exist in a state of affairs it exists in some type of intuition of what is right and wrong. Note. This is also compatible with some type of biological explanation of morality. It might be what part of how we evolved to form civilized societies and what not. Backup for (2) There is no state of affairs in the word that necessarily entails a certain moral judgment. In other words, every state of affairs that exists in the world can be interpreted. If there is room for interpretation then there is no necessary connection between our moral concepts and the state of affairs that we call moral (this can be both actions and intentions). We will never get a moral principle that is not relativistic in some sense. So, we conclude that there is no such thing as morals. Morals do not necessitate our actions. They are mere social conventions or biological dispositions to act. We might use these social conventions or biological dispositions to determine what to do. But, realize in accepting this we are giving up the idea that there is one morally correct course of action. And this seems to be the entire point of an ethical principle.
