What on earth is "a philosophical choice"?

Why is it being used as a synonym for Protagorean Subjectivism?

Protagoras was a sophist, not a philosopher (if you accept that distinction, as Plato did).

However, there are debates in contemporary philosophical circles about naturalism and non-naturalism - but not in the way in which you would think. It doesn't follow from say, value, being non-natural, that you are a raving creationist lunatic. Then again, it doesn't rule it out.
