This book aims to clarify the debate between moral relativists and moral absolutists by showing what is right and what is wrong about each of these positions, by revealing how the phenomenon of moral diversity is connected with moral relativism, and by arguing for the importance of relationships between persons as key to reaching a satisfactory understanding of the issues involved in the debate.

James Kellenberger is Professor of Philosophy at California State University. He is the author of several books, including Kierkegaard and Nietzsche: Faith and Eternal Acceptance (1997) and Relationship Morality (Penn State, 1995).

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
