Bereich(e) P1*: Einführung in die philosophische Analyse II


Metaethics is concerned with questions of the following kind: Can moral judgements be true of false? Are there (mind-independent) moral facts? How (if at all) can we gain moral knowledge? In this course, we will get acquainted with and discuss metaethical theories that purport to answer such questions.

Among the positions that we will discuss are the following views: "moral judgements are nothing but expressions of emotions or preferences", "morality is subjective: what is right for you can be wrong for me", "morality is none-sense", "moral facts are natural facts: facts that can, in principle, be discovered by the natural sciences", "moral facts are brought about by persons", "moral facts are non-natural and independent of anybody's attitude, perhaps akin to mathematical facts".
