Meaning and Value Judgements

Part of the Law and Philosophy Library book series (LAPS, volume 90)


Here in Chapter 6 there is first a summing up of meaning theories and of their implications for a conception of normative language. After a discussion o a paradigmatic empiricist approach to language, the one defended by Bertrand Russell, special attention is devoted to the “speech acts” theory. This is seen as propedeutic to the question of justification of moral judgments to be dealt in the following chapter.
