Emotion, Truth and Meaning: In Defense of Ayer and Stevenson / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Springer Netherlands
The Emotive Theory was theory ahead of its time, and a theory which was, perhaps understandably, misinterpreted, misrepresented, and ridiculed by its critics from the outset. In this work, the author acquaints the reader with what the original emotivists actually claimed, and enriches their claims by psychologically expanding them. He thus develops an enriched emotive theory.
