Abstract

In this essay, I discuss Eleonora Severini’s book, Etica ed evoluzionismo, focusing, in particular, on the question of the autonomy of ethics and its relation to evolutionism. I consider the way Severini frames the issue and the solution she proposes, according to which only if evolutionism is true can ethics be said to be autonomous. I conclude by pointing out how Severini effectively uses this thesis against those forms of moral realism that conceive ethics as something to be discovered rather than a human construct.
