I have just finished the book "The Big Picture" which is an essay on "poetic naturalism", a way of integrating scientific naturalism with our understanding of the world at human scale. I would like to share the last sentence from chapter 46 of the book with you: "We should understand that our desire for an objective grounding of morality creates a cognitive bias and (we) should compensate by being especially skeptical of such claims in that direction" In a word we cannot get Ought from Is. Bottom line: The is no objective principle that will move us from Is to Ought.
