That the normative supervenes on the non-normative, and that the normative depends on the non-normative is relative orthodoxy in metaethics. Both are widely held to be conceptual truths, operating as constraints on competence with normative concepts. The orthodox view ignores the possibility of genuinely thick concepts, and genuinely thick properties and facts. In this paper I discuss the implications of the genuinely thick for normative supervenience and dependence, and how this brings into view neglected positions on the metaphysics of the normative.
