Alasdair MacIntyre, modern ahlakı duygucu karaktere sahip olmakla eleştirir ve merkez eseri Erdem Peşinde’de bu ahlaka içerik kazandıran temel şahsiyet olarak David Hume’a işaret eder. MacIntyre’a göre Hume’un ve sonrasında onun etkisiyle gelişen duygucu ahlak felsefesi, genelde klasik ahlak geleneğine, özelde ise Aristoteles ahlak felsefesine temel zıtlıklar içerir. Ancak MacIntyre, bir taraftan bu zıtlığın Erdem Peşinde kitabında altını çizerken, diğer yandan Erdem Peşinde dışındaki -özellikle sonraki- yazılarında Hume ve Aristoteles’i ahlakın nasıl anlaşılması gerektiği noktasında benzer bakış açılarına sahip olarak bir araya getirir. Bu durum, MacIntyre’ın Hume yorumunu, görünüşte birbirini dışlayan bu anlama şekillerine işaret eden, iki farklı bakışla ele alınması gerekliliğini ortaya çıkarır. Bu makale, bu iki bakma şeklini bir araya getirerek, MacIntyre’ın Hume’u modern duyguculuk içerisinde konumlandırmasına dair bütünlüklü bir kavrayışı ortaya çıkarmayı amaçlamaktadır.

Alasdair MacIntyre criticizes the modern morality for having emotivist features and in his central book After Virtue he points out that David Hume is the main personality who provides these emotivist contents to the modern morality. According to MacIntyre, Hume’s and the modern emotivist moral philosophy include fundamental contrasts generally with the classical moral tradition particularly with Aristotle’s moral philosophy. However, MacIntyre underlines these contrasts in After Virtue, he in his other texts out of After Virtue, distinguishably brings Hume and Aristotle together as they both have similar standpoints about how to understand morality. Therefore, MacIntyre’s interpretation on Hume needs to be examined with a perspective pointing these two different and seemingly mutually exclusive aspects. Putting together these two perspectives, this article aims to construct a holistic comprehension about MacIntyre’s placing Hume in the modern emotivism.
