"they had to prove their fitness for the position"
Used in print(Brand Blanshard, "The Emotive Theory," Robert...)
Broad and Ross have lately contended that this fitness is one of the main facts of ethics , and I suspect they are right .
whether there is such fitness or not , we all assume that there is , and if we do , we express in moral judgments more than the subjectivists say we do .
In such a case , any attitude would be as fitting or unfitting as any other , which means that the notion of fitness has lost all point .
