Abstract: Olen declares at the outset that any plausible moral theory must incorporate the following apparently inconsistent "truisms" (as he calls them): that moral rules are society's rules; that morality is a matter of individual choice; and that some things are wrong no matter what any society or individual says. He then seeks to construct a consistent theory that incorporates these claims.
