Abstract

Contemporary ethical theory is in shambles. The emotivist critique is gradually convincing both layman and professional philosopher that "Nothing is either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." John Dewey's brand of philosophy provided a transition from the Hegelian-type absolutism to this new emotivism. And because his moral theory preserves some of the best from each tradition, it is relevant today.
