[From English emotive: pertaining to feeling or passion; derived from Latin emovere: to move out.]

  1. (ethics) A theory and movement of 20th century philosophy that held value-judgments to be nothing more than expressions of emotion (e.g., "Hitler is evil" really means "Boo Hitler!"); an extreme form of ethical subjectivism.
