Meadows LD N ATE S OCOLOF BRING THE RAIN! 2010/2011 STRATEGY SHEET So, given that Jake and Neil are being total d-bags and opening the next Pandora’s box in LD…we have the birth of Meta-Ethics at the Meadows. Also, this will keep the NSD crowd at bay. Can’t wait to see the look on the face of a Liu brother when I actually answer their one shitty Korsgaard card. By the time of its completion this should be a framework file that will put us above and beyond the rest. Jordan knew this storm was coming, we cut some petit and Sustine and Vermule and shit for normative ethical debates…The storm is here and we WILL bring the rain.

Meadows LD N ATE S OCOLOF BRING THE RAIN! 2010/2011 COGNITIVISM-TRUE Moral statements are constructed with undeniably truth functional terms. Because they ascrib moral properties to objects, actions, and people they cannot escape their truth-value. Moral Reality A Defence of Moral Realism. Caj Strandberg. Department of Philosophy Lund University 2004. Consider first non-cognitivism.47 The most important difficulties with this view are centred on the fact that there are a number of indications that moral sentences have truth-value in the way indicated above. First, many moral sentences seem to involve terms in virtue of which they ascribe moral properties to objects. Hence, they seem to be true or false just in the way other sentences of this form are . Non-cognitivists, denying that moral sentences have truth-value, have thus to understand such sentences in a way that is not consistent with their appearance . Moreover , some of our epistemic attitudes in relation to moral matters are such that moral sentences have to have truth-value. For example, we may take ourselves to know that Hitler was bad, to believe that it is right to let women decide whether they should have an abortion, to be unsure whether it is right to give money to beggars, to have been mistaken in believing that homosexual behaviour is wrong, etc. Such epistemic attitudes seem to require that moral sentences can be true or false. Since non-cognitivists deny this, they have difficulties accounting for these epistemic attitudes.
