But it is a challenge for philosophy, not for the credentials of moral thought as such. 6. A distinction without a difference? Throughout this paper I have assumed that one plausible criterion of a successful metaethical theory is that it make interpretive sense of moral thought as embedded in a social world in which morally serious people describe and communicate their predicament in moral terms, and sometimes respond to that 40 HALLVARD LILLEHAMMER predicament in morally insightful ways. I have argued that no universal error theory is likely to satisfy this criterion because, although it is obviously consistent to say (in one voice) that there are more or less insightful ways for people to think about their moral predicament, and then to say (in another voice) that this is only the case within the ‘fiction’ of morality, there is no way for a universal error theory to give plausible content to the second claim without deflating it to the point where it becomes an issue of little more than terminological interest.
