Introduction Mainly what we have studied so far is normative ethics, that is, how do we behave? Meta-ethics comes from meta (beyond) ethics and is a back to basics question of the meaning of ethical statements and language. Epistemology Knowledge (origins of knowledge)

Meta-ethical Questions What do we mean by good and bad and right and wrong? What do you think? What are some of the answers we have looked at so far? Do such concepts exist beyond human feeling?

What is this asking? Give a theory on either side of this. If they do, what does it mean to behave well? Back to Basics Fundamental Question of meta-ethics What is truth? And how can we discover it?

Divine Command Theory? Empiricism? Empiricism David Hume said truth must be verified through observation and experience. Ethical naturalism (GE Moore) applies this to

morality by asserting that the truth of ethical language eg good bad right wrong can only be known through observation and experience of nature. Summary At the beginning of last year, I used the

metaphor of a car mechanic working on a Ford Fiesta to describe this course. The car is morality, and you, the mechanic, must work out what is right or wrong with it. You must examine it and get it working. Yours tools are arguments. In threes, work out where meta-ethics might fit into this metaphor
