Najbardziej znany jest ze swoich poglądów na meta-etykę, zwłaszcza z obrony sceptycyzmu moralnego. Jest autorem sześciu książek. Najbardziej znaną z nich, ‘Ethics: Inventing Right and Wrong’ (1977) otwiera odważne twierdzenie, że "Nie ma czegoś takiego, jak obiektywne wartości". W książce tej autor dowodzi, że wartości etyczne nie są odkrywane przez ludzi – są przez nich tworzone.
  • (For other people named John Mackie, see John Mackie (disambiguation).) John Leslie Mackie (/ˈmæki/; 25 August 1917 – 12 December 1981), usually cited as J. L.

He authored six books. His most widely known, Ethics: Inventing Right and Wrong (1977), opens by boldly stating that "There are no objective values." It goes on to argue that because of this ethics must be invented, rather than discovered.
