Book on Mackie's Moral Error Theory

Richard Joyce and Simon Kirchin are editing A World Without Values: Essays on John Mackie's Moral Error Theory (forthcoming at Springer). The purpose of this volume is to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Mackie’s Ethics: Inventing Right and Wrong (Penguin, 1977). As you probably know, Mackie espoused a position usually called 'ontological moral skepticism' or 'skepticism about moral reality'.

The contributors include John Burgess, David Copp, Dan Demetriou, Richard Garner, Joyce, Kirchin, Don Loeb, Graham Oddie, David Phillips, Charles Pigden, Walter Sinnott-Armstrong, Michael Smith, and Caroline West.
