Universalism Vs. Relativism: Making Moral Judgments in a Changing, Pluralistic, and Threatening World

Browning, D. S. Universalism Vs. Relativism: Making Moral Judgments in a Changing, Pluralistic, and Threatening World, Lanham: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc., 2006.

 Has moral relativism run its course? The threat of 9/11, terrorism, reproductive technology, and globalization has forced us to ask anew whether there are universal moral truths upon which to base ethical and political judgments. In this timely edited collection, distinguished scholars present and test the best answers to this question. These insightful responses temper the strong antithesis between universalism and relativism and retain sensitivity to how language and history shape the context of our moral decisions. This important and relevant work of contemporary political and social thought is ideal for use in the classroom across many disciplines, including political science, philosophy, ethics, law, and theology.
