Väyrynen argues that thick concepts âe" such as lewd and rude, selfish and cruel, courageous and kind âe" are evaluative only as a matter of pragmatics. If thick concepts are not inherently evaluative in meaning, they cannot have the deep and distinctive significance they are often given in moral philosophy.
