I'm trying to answer the June 2012 question- to what extent do moral statements have objective meaning?
i'm really struggling with the intuitionism approach, which says that moral statements are objective, but our intuition is inside us, so surely that makes them subjective?!
Help would be much appreciated!

Intuitionism is essentially the idea that there is an objective set of moral truths which can be accessed THROUGH our intuition. Our intuition is what justifies them as true/false, not empirical evidence. Think of intuition as an 'inner sense' of right and wrong. We therefore know things as right (objectively) through intuition. Hope this helps Are you doing edexcel?
