I might perhaps add that in one of the studies in "motivational internalism and folk intuitions", subjects were as willing to attribute moral belief in an explicit "inverted commas" scenario as in a regular amoralist scenario. (The inverted commas scenario was like the regular amoralist scenario with the exception that the agent's putative moral judgments were explicitly concerned with whether others would say that the action in question was morally wrong.) This might indicate that attributions of moral belief to amoralists are not attributions of the sort of moral belief that metaethicists have been interested in: everyone agrees that inverted commas beliefs are possible, whatever the correct metaethical theory.
