Review

A valuable resource for researchers working on the topic of relativism.... Highly recommended.

Review

Nobody can read these essays without learning not only a great deal about relativism but also a great deal about how to do philosophy, period.

(Alan Ryan, Oxford University)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the best anthologies on relativism. It is balanced, comprehensive, and philosophically sophisticated. It is fairly difficult, in my opinion, and may be best suited for someone already acquainted with philosophy or an intelligent lay reader.
