According to the moral error theory, all moral propositions are false as they do not refer to any referent in the world. If such metaethics were correct, should we abandon moral thinking or continue as if nothing happened? What would our life be like if we ended up moralizing each of our choices? Moral abolitionism argues that our lives would turn out to be better, and therefore it attempts to persuade us to eliminate moral practices. This paper presents a critical introduction to the abolitionist project, investigating its reasons and highlighting its difficulties. In this work, moral abolitionism is placed within a broader metaethical framework, then it is compared with moral fictionalism and conservationism. Finally, it is distinguished between assertive and non-assertive moral abolitionism.
