In this book, David B. Wong defends an ambitious and important new version of moral relativism. He does not espouse the type of relativism that says anything goes, but he does start with a relativist stance against alternative theories such that there need not only be one universal truth. Rather, Wong proposes that there can be a plurality of true moralities existing across different traditions and cultures, all with one core human question as to how we can all live together. Wong's interesting position draws from Western and Eastern philosophies, psychology, evolutionary theory, history and literature.
