Moral externalisation fails to scale

Brusse, Carl; Sterelny, Kim


We argue that Stanford's picture of the evolution of externalised norms is plausible mostly because of the idealisations implicit in his defence of it. Once we take into account plausible amounts of normative disagreement, plausible amounts of error and misunderstanding, and the knock-on consequences of shunning, it is plausible that Stanford undercounts the costs of externalisation.
