In Empirical Realism David K. Clark asks, simply: is there a moral structure to the universe? His answer takes a rigorous detour through key questions raised by classical philosophy, metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophy of mind. Although the argument favors the moral realist's position that the universe does have a moral structure integral to the quality and direction of human life it also serves to further complicate this issue for moral realism.
