Abstract

The thesis deals with a contemporary debate between R.M. Hare and Philippa Foot, both of Oxford University, over the fact-value distinction. It centres on their dispute over the meaning of moral terms, the content of moral principles and argument, but attempts to place the debate in its historical context, thus drawing out the main reasons for its importance.
