Abstract: Gerald H. Paske has recently criticized some of the conclusions of my work on moral dilemmas. Paske's argument turns on the intriguing idea that right-making properties are incommensurate. In this essay, I argue that even if basic values are incommensurate, we need not endorse the possibility of genuine moral dilemmas.
