Metaethics : A Contemporary Introduction, Paperback / softback Book

Metaethics : A Contemporary Introduction Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy series


Metaethics: A Contemporary Introduction provides a solid foundation in metaethics for advanced undergraduates by introducing a series of puzzles that most metaethical theories address.

These puzzles involve moral disagreement, reference, moral epistemology, metaphysics, and moral psychology.

From there, author Mark van Roojen discusses the many positions in metaethics that people will take in reaction to these puzzles.

Van Roojen asks several essential questions of his readers, namely: What is metaethics?

Why study it? How does one discuss metaethics, given its inherently controversial nature?

Each chapter closes with questions, both for reading comprehension and further discussion, and annotated suggestions for further reading.
