Taking Normativity Seriously
Abstract: Taking Normativity Seriously
This issue of L’Ircocervo is devoted to the new research directions on normativity that have emerged due to new attention paid to normative phenomena also in empirical disciplines such as ethology, anthropology, psychology and neuroscience. In this introduction, we propound some of the problems and some of the new research directions that are emerging, emphasising the fact that in many cases, for the resolving of problems and the advancement of research, the collaboration of philosophy with other scientific disciplines will be desirable or even necessary. Notably, we formulate eight questions that the philosophy of norms and normativity will have to face in the decades to come.
