Geary cannot read more of Pistorius since Geary hasn't read any of Pistorius. Perhaps Geary should read some of Pistorius, but I assure you Geary won't.

Exactly.

It's best to deal with operators, like "deontic" and 'boulemaic' (the good,
the teleological, the aretaic).

The boulemaic wants to say (and succeds in saying something true, too) that
the deontic IMPORTANTLY reduces to the boulemaic.
