ERROR THEORY VS EXPRESIVISM THEORY
Moral nihilism
Moral nihilism is the meta-moral view that moral cases are fraudulent. It posits
that there is no target moral realities or genuine suggestions - that nothing is ethically
acceptable, terrible, off-base, right, and so forth - because there are no ethical certainties
(mulligan, k. (2017). The case aims at analyzing two major concepts in moral nihilism.
Error theory
Error theory is a branch of moral nihilism that consolidates cognitivism with
moral nihilism. The idea that ordinary smart thought and talk is centered around the
significant and inevitable error, and that each moral enunciation makes false ontological
cases (sayanti, m. T. (2017).
Error theory holds that we don't realize that any ethical case is genuine because
(i) all moral cases are false,
(ii) we have the motivation to accept that every single good case is false,and
(iii) because we are not advocated in accepting any case, we have the
motivation to deny, and we are accordingly not defended in accepting any ethical cases
whatsoever.
The global falsity type of error theory guarantees that ethical convictions and
statements are bogus in that they guarantee that specific good realities exist that don't in
actuality exist. The presupposition failure structure guarantees that ethical convictions
and attestations are false because they are neither genuine nor fraudulent. For example,
