This article shows that the problem of defeasibility hinges on a more fundamental issue about the source of authority of moral reasons. It argues that the legitimate source of moral authority is rationality, and that rational justification deploys universal principles. However, normative defeasibility raises important issues about the possibility of practical inferences. As an alternative, a non standard version of Kantian constructivism is defended.

Abstract

This article shows that the problem of defeasibility hinges on a more fundamental issue about the source of authority of moral reasons. It argues that the legitimate source of moral authority is rationality, and that rational justification deploys universal principles. However, normative defeasibility raises important issues about the possibility of practical inferences. As an alternative, a non standard version of Kantian constructivism is defended.
