In Chapter 7 an attempt is made to apply the results obtained in Chapters 3 and 6 to meta-ethics and the study of morality and moral sentences. Meta-ethical doctrines are reviewed and criticized by focusing then to the issue of universalizability. At the end of the chapter a definition of the moral point of view is advanced. In this chapter – which is of special importance to the argument of the book – moral doctrines are assessed at the meta-theoretical level and a particular attention is given to “discourse theory” approaches.
