Brink: The Form and Content of Moral Judgements

by Carson Reynolds

Brink reacts against the non-cognitivist position on the absence of truth value for moral claims by advocating moral realism. For a presentation, I compared Brink’s description of the cognitvist account with Ayer’s non-cognitivist description. The handout prepared for my presentation summarizes some key points in the argument and provides background on Austin’s speech act theory.
