Good V 273
Non-cognitivism/Moore thesis: "good" is completely outside the natural sciences - E.g. "good" cannot be = "contributes to the utility maximization" - because then it would not only be wrong to say "it is good, but does not contribute to maximizing" but self-contradictory, and that should be excluded - Property/Term/PutnamVsMoore: confusion of property and term: - that two concepts are different, does not entail that being good is not the same property as being P.
