SummaryHilary Putnam argues that all facts are dependent on cognitive values. Ruth Anna Putnam turns the problem around, illuminating the factual basis of moral principles. Together, they offer a pragmatic vision that in Hilary's words serves "as a manifesto for what the two of us would like philosophy to look like in the twenty-first century and beyond."
