"Emotivism is superior to other meta ethical theories"

Advantages

  • Can be argued as egalitarian - promotes eqality
  • Avoids meaninglessness of language and focus on fact
  • Appeals to our scientific minds to look at morality as a social/psychological creation

Disadvantages

  • Reduces moral statements to the level of any other type of statement
  • Naturalism is superior because it encourages moral debate
  • Intuitionism is better because it encourages development as a person

Evaluation

Emotivism isn't superior to other meta ethical theories as it doesn't come to substantial moral conclusions about morality
