Instead, Stevenson proposes that ethical disagreement arises when two people have incompossible 5 attitudes toward the same object and one of them, at least, wishes to change the other's attitude. Wellman is suspicious of the latter condition, accusing Stevenson of using it to gloss over the fact that some people have ethical differences without disagreement.
