This article is written from a personal standpoint. I have emphasized the view that the moral and the physical realms are separate, and attempts to include all of subjective experience within the scientific enterprise, while laudable and successful to a degree, are arguably never going to succeed entirely. Consequently some bias appears in this article so far as I have written it, and little patience is given to long and convoluted semantic exercises that date back prior to Plato and continue until today with (in my opinion) next to no progress or illumination, simply repeating old conundrums in newer language.

Sloppy editing and proofreading detract heavily from the value of the article. "Casual" vs. "causal" is an error which leaps off the screen, yet the error is repeated. 03:32, 24 November 2013 William Meyer
