(p.169) 6 Disagreement
Impassioned Belief

Michael Ridge

Oxford University Press

This chapter develops and defends an expressivism-friendly theory of normative disagreement. It argues that existing expressivist treatments of normative disagreement are inadequate, and that disagreement should instead be understood in terms of ‘disagreement in prescription’. This account is shown to be superior to both Charles Stevenson's classical idea of ‘disagreement in attitude’ and Allan Gibbard's more recent idea of ‘disagreement in plan’.

Keywords:   expressivism, normative disagreement, prescription, Charles Stevenson, disagreement in attitude, Allan Gibbard, disagreement in plan
