Hamlet: anti-realist morality, subjective.

It *can* be, though. here is an example of an appropriate re-direction:

Hamlet’s tortured soul can be considered a response-dependent morality, subjective, not necessarily relativist but certainly anti-realist.

His famous line:
““there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”
captures it well.

From a moral realist standpoint of course, Hamlet’s torture is inconsequential to morality. But to a moral anti-realist, quite consequential. No?

This is why the post should remain, although a shift in language away from literature and psychology and towards philosophy is appropriate.

Disagree?
