- His book is called "Language, truth and logic"
- He believed we decide in a matter of seconds on how we feel about a subject. WE may not say it but it can be implied through our facial expression, words and body language.
- His book was called "Ethics and language"
- Statements are more than just expressing emotion
- We can't expect someone to agree with our opinions all the time
Intuition is about weighing up all the available facts to find the best outcome.
- We know what good is but we cannot define it. He gives the example of the colour yellow, we know what it is but cannot define its qualities.
- He believed that there were two types of thinking:
General (looking at the facts of a situation) Moral (Deciding what to do with the facts)
We derive what we need to do from facts we know about the world
- Morality is simply finding our place in society
- A good ethical life is divided into two stages:
1)Find your position in society
2) Try to be the best person in that role
- Just because something is something it doesn't mean it ought to be (Hume's guillotine)
- Good is indefinable (naturalistic fallacy)
