Warnock, G. J. Contemporary Moral Philosophy. London: Macmillan, 1967. Contains a standard critique of non-naturalism. EXPRESSIVISM One way of avoiding both the challenge posed to naturalism by the open-question argument as well as the metaphysical and epistemological extravagances of non-naturalism involves denying that moral sentences are in the business of purporting to represent facts. There are various forms, including emotivism, prescriptivism, quasi-realism, and norm-expressivism. Emotivism Emotivism is the view that moral judgments express emotions, feelings, or sentiments, and are thus not assessable in terms of truth and falsity.
