Foundationalists vs. Pragmatists

 

The philosophical division on morality comes down to foundationalists vs. pragmatists. Foundationalists include those who posit morality comes from one of three basic sources: divine (God-given); biological (science-given); rational (logic-given). Pragmatists (anti-foundationalists) reject all three of these and say our moral code has no “foundational basis”, but is code developed and selected by us based on a variety of influences and measures.
