Torfinn Huvenes, Umeå universitet: "Moral Disagreement and Disagreement about Taste"

What, if any, are the differences between moral disagreement and disagreement about taste? I argue that one difference has to do with the extent to which it is correct to revise one's judgment in light of such disagreement. I then argue that the best explanation of this difference is that disagreement about taste is sometimes faultless, but moral disagreement is not faultless. Finally, I use this as a basis for arguing that moral disagreement involves disagreement in belief, while disagreement about taste involves disagreement in attitude.
