Pluralizm metaetyczny


Subjectivism put an end to the discussion concerning good and evil at the object level, but at the same time it began a controversy on the metalevel, as far as the meaning of evaluative sentences is concerned. However, subjectivism can be extended to the metalevel, as metaethical pluralism, claiming that the common meaning of estimating sentences is vague, so those who make moral evaluations can decide by themselves what precise meaning and, consequently, what logical status they prescribe to these evaluations. The paper deals with the way in which the acceptance of the metaethical pluralism would influence the moral philosophy. Three possible scenarios are described.
