Is God Irrelevant?
This essay, written for a symposium on Ronald Dworkin’s recent posthumous book Religion Without God, argues that Dworkin misunderstands the way theists typically think God relates to “morality.” The essay sketches a subjectivist (or “super-subjectivist”) account of morality that arguably better fits the understanding of believers in the biblical tradition than does Dworkin’s more objectivist account.
