Moral semantics: how do we define "Good" and "Bad"?
« on: August 26, 2017, 08:33:50 PM »

I have a question about the moral argument, regarding moral semantics.

My question is not about moral epistemology (how we know moral values and duties) nor about moral ontology (do moral values and duties exists)
Rather, it is on moral semantics : what do we mean when we say that action A is good and action B is bad?

It seems to me that before we can talk about moral ontology, we must first talk about semantics.

So, what does it actually mean to say that some action is morally good/bad?
