No longer of mere academic interest, relativism has become a global concern sociologically and politically. Can a non-relativist account of morality validate our moral experiences without undesirable implications? Mohammad Ali Shomali believes it can, and demonstrates that – unlike in the past two centuries – support for ethical relativism is on the decline. In its place, he proposes a new theory of morality based on self-love, moral ideals, and the process of decision-making from an Islamic perspective.
A fresh perspective on the on-going debate on post-modernism and relativism, Ethical Relativism should be of interest to all who study philosophy, theology, cultural studies, and spirituality.
