Editorial Reviews

“Kellenberger’s book is thoughtful, evocative, well researched, and informative. He has managed to pull together a notable range of examples to illustrate his thesis that a proper understanding of person-person relationships can untangle differences between relativists and anti-relativists. . . . Examples include abortion, marital fidelity, the distribution of justice, famine relief, genital mutilation—all sensitive to such non-Western cultures as tribal Africa, Buddhism, and Hinduism. . . . This book should find its place in many courses in ethics, philosophy of social science, cultural theory, and other courses concerned with multicultural themes.”—Michael Krausz, Bryn Mawr College
