This paper advances three claims.
1: The on-going debates in moral and political philosophy over idealisation and "ideal theory" vs "non-ideal
theory" are ill-served by a lack of attention to the form of reflection itself.
2: The appropriate form of reflection on the nature and justification of standards of
justice and morality is practical rather than theoretical.
3. The form of practical reason cannot support many of the idealisations standardly
deployed in modern moral and political philosophy.
