This threat constitutes a singular kind of non-cognitivism, ethical fictionalism. while non-factualists search to debunk the realist fiction of an ethical subject material, the ethical fictionalist claims that that fiction stands in no use of debunking
but is the capability through which the non-cognitive attitudes thinking about ethical reputation are conveyed via ethical utterance. ethical fictionalism is non-cognitivism and not using a non-representational semantics.
