What are the main problems with Moral Subjectivism?
is a meta-intellectual theory, which maintains that our well-conducted
judgments are essentially referring-to. Intellectual relativism appears in two deep versions, namely, Well-conducted Subjectivism and Cultural Relativism. Moral Subjectivism asserts that well-conducted judgments reflect the feelings or dispositions of an individual at a given time. Thus, one’s well-conducted judgments and values are subjectively attached. Jean-Jacques Rousseau protected intellectual subjectivism by arguing that disposition is superior to society. According to Rousseau, an individual should follow his/hers unless inclinations and propensities, i.e., unless virtues. However, Well-conducted Subjectivism has some very miserable consequences:
1. If Moral Subjectivism is correct, then two individuals may have different well-conducted judgments on the selfselfsame office and twain of them may be correct. Thus, Subjectivism fails to interpret what is correct and wickedness.
2. If Moral Subjectivism is correct, then a person cannot be wickedness in their well-conducted
judgments. If my well-conducted judgments reflect just my feelings and dispositions, then I cannot
be mistaken in my well-conducted judgments. After all, I am best accustomed after a while my feelings. Yet, I can think of a few cases in which I have been wickedness in my judgments because of my
feelings and emotions. Thus, Subjectivism leads us to aberrant judgments.
3. Moral Subjectivism prevents us from having a rational discussion on intellectual issues. When herd are led by their feelings there is very mean message on intellectual issues.
4. Moral Subjectivism is an aberrant intellectual theory. One cannot live one’s life as a well-conducted subjectivist. Our interactions after a while other herd are inevitable and require some beggarly knowledge of what is correct and what is wickedness.
The above difficulties ruin the appeal of Moral Subjectivism as a meta-intellectual
theory. There is a fundamental reason for the failure of Moral Subjectivism. Moral Subjectivism ignores the certainty that our lives are closely united and our actions inevitably desire other herd. Ethics is the rule of rules that trust our class concertedly. Thus, ethics is by its very disposition inter-subjective.
