Abstract

In this article I deploy Michael Tanner’s (1964) work on the relation between what are now called 'think' and 'thin' concepts in ethics to defend the claim that morally relevant facts cannot be accessed saved through the individual perspective. This commitment, inspired by Tanner’s work in aesthetics, calls forth another category in understanding normativity that is precluded by the familiar distinctions between fact and value, between objective and subjective.
