Abstract: In this paper, we argue for an objectivist pluralist interpretation of Hume’s moral philosophy. We begin by approaching the pluralist/relativist distinction in aesthetics. Then we move to ethics, and present some reasons which justify considering Hume a normative pluralist, and, in particular, an objectivist pluralist. Our argument will make use of Hume’s idea that there are four sources of value, and of his notion of artificial lives/moralities.
Keywords: objectivist pluralism, relativism, artificial/natural morality, sources of value, aesthetic relativism
