Metaethics: An Introduction presents a clear and engaging survey of the key concepts and positions in what has become one of the most exciting and influential fields of philosophy. In a work free of technicality and jargon, the book covers the main ideas that have shaped metaethics from the work of G.E. Moore to the latest thinking. Written specifically for beginning students, the book assumes no prior philosophical knowledge. The book highlights ways to avoid common errors, offers hints and tips on learning the subject, includes a glossary of key terms and provides guidance for further study."--Publisher description."@en ;
