I'm trying to clarify my moral position, so I've been doing a lot of research into ethics (both meta-ethics and normative).
On one hand, I definitely align with utilitarianism (especially rule utilitarianism). That seems to be a "Moral Universalism" position, in that it should apply to all people at all times, regardless of culture. This seems, from my understanding, to be a moral realist position.
However, on the other hand, I also find myself agreeing with Non-cognitivism: I don't believe that moral claims are "propositions" that can be true or false. This is clearly a moral anti-realist position.
My question is: are these two positions contradictory? Or am I just misunderstanding the terminology?
