No century in the evolution of poetry in English ever had poets worth reading, so why are we being asked to sample so many poets of little or no lasting value? good human act replaces talk of right and wrong.3 Geach says little in the paper in question about how we are to identify good human acts, but I think we may take it that the moral theory he had in mind was something along the lines that Philippa Foot has since developed in her book Natural Goodness

    Quasi-realism is the meta-ethical view which claims that. Ethical sentences do not express propositions.; Instead, ethical sentences project emotional attitudes as though they were real properties.; This makes quasi-realism a form of non-cognitivism or expressivism.

Peter Geach argues that GE Moore confuses predicative adjectives “a brown horse” with attributive adjectives eg “a good philosopher” – where the word good here makes no sense without the noun because it is attributing certain skills etc to someone who is “a philosopher”.

Geach plans to 'pass' from the 'purely descriptive' man to good/bad man, and from human act to good/bad human act. I argue: (l) That the predicative 'good' does have a genuine sense and that it is a mistake to suppose that ‘good’ is a purely attributive adjective.

Geach’s moral philosophy, too, is strongly influenced by Catholicism. This holds And if we say that Peter Geach was good, we either mean that he was a good “‘That is a good book’ means something like ‘I recommend that book’ or ‘choose that book’” (36).

GOOD AND EVIL 33 GOOD AND EVIL By P. GEACH MY first task will be to draw a logical distinction between two sorts of adjectives, suggested by the distinction be- tween attributive adjectives (e.g. 'a red book') and predicative adjectives (e.g.' this book is red'); I shall borrow this termi.

Terry Horgan and Mark Timmons’s “Moral Twin Earth” thought experiment allegedly undercuts virtually any form of naturalist moral realism. I argue that a neo-Aristotelian conception of moral properties defeats Moral Twin Earth.
