How to Be a Moral Taste Theorist
Essays in Philosophy
In this paper, I attempt to recover an 18 th Century approach to moral theory that can be called Moral Taste Theory. Through an exploration of 18 th Century sources I define the characteristics of moral taste theory and to distinguish it from its closest rival, moral sense theory. In general a moral taste theorist holds that moral judgments are analogous to aesthetic judgments while a moral sense theorist holds that moral judgments are analogous to physical sense perception.
