(p.1) Introduction
Impassioned Belief

Michael Ridge

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter sets out the theory presented in this book. It begins by discussing the notion of normative judgment and the two diametrically opposed philosophical camps that emerged from its practice — cognitivism and non-cognitivism — each of which emphasizes one half of the Janus-faced nature of normative judgment at the expense of the other. It then argues that Ecumenical Expressivism's commitments in the philosophy of language should be understood as, first and foremost, commitments in meta-semantics. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   normativity, normative judgment, Ecumenical Expressivism, meta-semantics
