In Unbelievable Errors, I defend an error theory about all normative judgements, I argue that we cannot believe this theory, and I argue that our inability to believe this theory makes the theory more likely to be true. This Précis gives a brief overview of my arguments for the error theory and of my explanation of our inability to believe the theory.
