This paper addresses the problem of how to account for objective content—for the distinction between how we actually apply terms and the conditions in which we ought to apply them—from within a naturalistic framework. Though behaviourist or dispositionalist approaches are generally held to be unsuccessful in naturalising objective content or 'normativity', I attempt to restore the credibility of such approaches by sketching a behaviouristic programme for explicating objective content.
