Emotivism MacIntyre Brocker I 655
Emotivism/Morality/Criteria/MacIntyreVsModernism/MacIntyre: According to MacIntyre, the "emotivist self" is characterized by a "loss of all last criteria" (1). Therefore, it fluctuates between perceived moral concepts. Problem: the subject is not involved in a supporting community.
Def Emotivism/MacIntyre: teaches that all judgmental judgments, or more precisely all moral judgments, are merely an expression of preferences, attitudes or feelings. (2)
Problem: emotivism leads to the loss of any real distinction between manipulative and non-manipulative social relationships. (3) See Roles/MacIntyre.
