In this virtual session, we'll clarify topics in the meta ethics section of the A-level syllabus. We’ll start with the question, ‘Do mind-independent moral properties exist?’. This will introduce us to the distinction between moral realism and moral anti-realism. Then, in light of this initial question, we will raise the further question, ‘What do moral judgements mean?’. This will introduce us to the distinction between cognitivism and non-cognitivism. Together, we will explore how these notions relate to one another to create various types of meta-ethical theories.
