Re: A brief nicety...

Chaz, I'm asking a direct question. What constitutes being "universal" on your view? Earlier you invoked "universal applicability". That is useless for the task at hand, for a falsehood can be universally applied. I've already answered your question. There is a distinction that needs to be made and ...

Re: A brief nicety...

What, on your view, would constitute being universal morality? What criterion must be satisfied in order to warrant calling it that?

Re: A brief nicety...

The irony here is thick. Thick indeed. To put it rather bluntly, you have no idea what you're talking about.

Re: A brief nicety...

chaz: As for moral contradiction. I'm willing to discuss this with a case. eg. Is abortion immoral Hopefully, you're willing to contemplate something anew. X is immoral IFF it conflicts with universal morality. Now, this changes the way that you must think about morality, but that is necessary. It ...

Re: A brief nicety...

I stand by every claim I've made. If you knew what it would take for my claim(s) to be true, then you would know what I mean. :wink: Call it charity. There can be no understanding when one is quibbling over the meaning of uncontentious terms like "simple" and "complex". That is never a good sign. No...

Re: A brief nicety...

chaz: You have just proved that the law of non contradiction is a fallacy. Your position is incoherent, and that was just shown. Moral and emotional issues are notoriously difficult, and do not submit to logio-mathematical analysis. Even Russell would have agreed. This simple truth is exactly why l...

Re: A brief nicety...

Meaning is use, and communication is public. I'm getting the distinct impression that you're either disingenuous or do not understand my argument, what little I've given.

You can begin again, if you like.

Tell me, what is it that I mean?

Re: A brief nicety...

creative: If morality is a property of thought, then it cannot be a code of conduct. chaz: All codes of conduct are derived from thinking. Are you really THAT stupid? Well, if my knowing that X being derived from Y does not make X a property of Y, then... yes. I am that stupid. According to that lo...

Re: A brief nicety...

Try this... If morality equates to a 'moral'/ethical code of conduct, then it equates to them all, so because of the nature of behavioral codes... 1. What is moral/immoral is subject to, influenced by, and established within individual particular social circumstances. 2. What is moral/immoral is det...

Re: A brief nicety...

1. Complex thought/belief requires language acquisition. 2. All moral/ethical thought/belief, codes of conduct, and discourse consists of complex thought/belief. 3. Moral/ethical thought/belief, codes of conduct, and discourse requires language acquisition.(from 1,2) 4. Simple thought/belief is the ...

Re: A brief nicety...

Claim 1. The SEP article on the 'definition' equates morality with a code of conduct. That is an all too common (mis)conception on my view. Codes of conduct are standards of behavior that are established/based upon that which is already considered to be acceptable/unacceptable thought/behavior and ...
