The Language of Morals
  • espoused prescriptivism, compared to emotivism and to the categorical imperative of Immanuel Kant. For example, take the moral proposition "Murder is wrong". According to an emotivist, such a statement merely expresses an attitude of the speaker. It only means something like "Boo on murder!" However, according to prescriptivism, the statement "Murder is wrong" means something more like "Do not murder". What it expresses is not primarily an emotion, it is an imperative. A value-judgment might also have descriptive and emotive meanings, but these are not its primary meaning.

Great Books of the Western World
Ed. with Mortimer Adler. Encyclopædia Britannica. Rev. 1990.
  • Great books, Great Books Program
  • Robert M. Pirsig, in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, has his main character Phædrus criticize the Great Books project radically for underestimating the value of the books:
    "He came to hate them vehemently, and to assail them with every kind of invective he could think of, not because they were irrelevant but for exactly the opposite reason. The more he studied, the more convinced he became that no one had yet told the damage to this world that had resulted from our unconscious acceptance of their thought."
