Meta-ethics explores the meaning of moral language with detailed comments and analysis of three major theories: emotivism, intuitionism and prescriptivism. Pitched just right and more comprehensive than a textbook, these three approaches are set against a background of the attack on naturalistic ethics – and a critical assessment is made of each attack in the light of the resurgence of naturalism.
