Mackie's Platonic picture 1. Does "Mackie's Platonic picture" mean "Mackie's Platonic ideas"? 2. Does "while holding" refer to " contemporary views"? Context: The internalist character of Mackie's Platonic picture curiously aligns it with contemporary views that similarly accept existence internalism, while holding that the capacity for motivation in fact depends on a preexisting desire.
