Abstract
Here, we will discuss about some theories of meta-ethics. Meta-ethics the branch of philosophy discusses about many moral terms. It focuses on the nature of moral terms. Here the meaning of moral terms are descriptive or imperative or emotive in nature. The differences are presented by many philosophers as like Warnock, Moore, Searle, Ross and so on. They all contributed in many ways by theorizing.
