The Good, the Bad and the Right: Formal Reductions among Deontic Concepts

Daniela Glavaničová, Matteo Pascucci
2021 Bulletin of the Section of Logic  
The present article provides a taxonomic analysis of bimodal logics of normative ideality and normative awfulness, two notions whose meaning is here explained in terms of the moral values pursued by a given community. Furthermore, the article addresses the problem of defining other relevant normative notions, such as obligation, explicit permission and Hohfeldian relations, in terms of ideality and awfulness. Some proposals formulated in the literature are improved and discussed with reference to the various logics introduced.
