What is quasi-realism?


Question asked by: knowitall

This term was invented by Simon Blackburn, who christened the concept of quasi-realism. It is a metaethical theory - that it is to say, it does not tell us anything in particular that we should do, but rather attempts to describe what is going on when we think ethically.

It says that moral rules are not 'true' per se, but rather that they are just an expression of an attitude. Nevertheless, moral rules just the same as they do to the realist, to the quasi-realist, hence the name of the theory.
