Are there mind-independent moral facts? Both robust and relaxed moral realists answer in the positive. However, whilst robust moral realists regard theses about the existence of moral facts as metaphysical claims that are external to moral discourse, relaxed moral realists submit that these theses must be interpreted as expressions of moral commitments put forward within the moral domain. But how exactly are robust and relaxed varieties of moral realism to be understood? Can we be relaxed about moral facts, or does moral realism have to be robust? What is at stake within this debate, and how do different versions of relaxed moral realism differ? The aim of this conference is to discuss these and related questions.
