Notes: This book offers an original argument for the plausibility of a reinterpreted relativism, and for the compatibility of relativism and contemporary liberalism. Both of these positions are controversial, and this book sets about defending them through an analysis of the universalist and relativist theories of prominent contemporary scholars such as Habermas, Rawls, Harman and Nagel. By offering a new and challenging argument for the relevance of relativism, this work presents an important contribution to current debates about both political liberalism and moral justification.
