Introduction: Terms and moral judgements

What moral terms and judgements should people use to resolve moral issues? How are they interrelated? These two questions will be answered through an analysis of five classes of moral terms and judgements.

The first of the five classes of moral terms and judgements is ‘Duty’. The representative terms of this class are ‘duty’ (and ‘obligation’) as well as ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. The class of terms includes: duty, obligation, right, wrong, responsible, forbidden, ought, prescribed, should, permissible, must, may, bound, correct, sinful, moral, immoral, ethical, unethical.
