5.0 out of 5 stars Relativism defended., July 30, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Language Diversity and Thought: A Reformulation of the Linguistic Relativity Hypothesis (Studies in the Social and Cultural Foundations of Language) (Paperback)
With perhaps the exception of moral relativism, all forms of Relativism are out of fashion at the moment, a point Lucy is clear to point out. Lucy is to be congratulated on sticking with the issue, showing that relativism is far from dead. His book is based on clear scientific research, and is most convincing. This book should be read by all students of anthropology and linguistics, but more so by cognitive science students who are being taught that relativism is a dead issue. An excellent book!
