|Ethics fares no better under the analytic school, for the analyst restricts his attention to studying the role of moral language in common life circumstances. His job is merely that of analyzing and describing; he can offer no directive help or moral principle for situations in which one is morally uncertain. Moreover, there is no guarantee that the situations which he analyzes are instances of valid or genuine moral behavior or applications of true moral principle; hence, if the analyst laid down moral directives based on his study of the actual use made of moral language, he would be open to criticism for committing the naturalistic fallacy.|
