Stegmüller IV 180
Naturalism/MooreVsNaturalism/Ethics/Stegmüller: the naturalistic ethicists commit the mistake of confusing the question of being good with the question of what things are good.
---
IV 181
Moore: It could be that all and only the good things have certain feature combinations. This should not be used as a definition of "good", since one cannot conclude from the extension to the intension.
"Good"/Moore: what the word names, is precisely the intension. So this word has to denotate a nonnatural quality.
Descriptively, however, only the extension could be detected, otherwise this would be circular!
