In this article an attempt is made to bring out the presuppositions of the first
formulation of ethical realism held by Antonio Millán-Puelles in his recently
published work, La libre afirmación de nuestro ser. Una fundamentarían de la
ética realista. These presuppositions show that the central problem in moral
philosophy, known as the "Is-Ought" question, is dealt with in a very positive
way by pointing out the intrinsic relation that there is between human nature
and human freedom.
