Abstract

When we talk about grounding, we can speak generally or about particular cases. We can say that an act is right in virtue of maximizing happiness. Or we can say that Gwen's act of charity is right in virtue of maximizing happiness. In this essay, I argue that generic grounding claims do not merely quantify over particular relationships of ground. Rather, generic grounding claims express real definitions.
