Description
March27 How do we make moral judgements? According to the rationalist view, we make moral judgements consciously and deliberately E.g. Breaking a promise We make moral judgements for the most part based on emotional responses...this is the emotivist account Flash of negative affect gives me the judgement that this particular thing is wrong The most prominent historical defender (or was it opponent) of the emotivist view is Hume. Check 7 mins in Social Intuitionist Model There are two types of mental processes...1. Fast and effortless, unconscious 2. Slow controlled, analytical conscious, takes a lot of effort In a nutshell, “Intuitions come first, strategic reasoning second.” Moral Dumbfounding Unable to explain reasons as to why one believes a certain thing or does a certain thing E.g. brother and sister having sex with each other Why is it wrong?
