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.
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.
