Science of Morality –> Ethical Naturalism –> Moral Realism –> Cognitivism (ethics) –> Ontology

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_of_morality is in the family of:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethical_naturalism
which is a form of:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_realism
which is a form of:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitivism_%28ethics%29
which attempts to give it an Ontological basis.

This chain of reasoning is solely from following one Wikipedia article to another. tongue emoticon

 

I tend towards an Epistemological rather than Ontological basis for things in general. I’m just trying to clarify the other position a little better.

 

In broad terms it seems to be a battle between:
Meta-ethical moral relativism
and
Meta-ethical moral universalism

very broadly speaking.
