Description - Who's to Say? by Norman Melchert
Arguments are examined, re-examined, challenged, and honoured in this lively dialogue on relativism and objectivity. Topics considered include whether truth and goodness are matters determined by individual opinion; whether they are defined by cultures; whether a nondogmatic form of relativism is viable; whether the objectivity of science escapes relativism; and pragmaticsm as an alterbative to relativism. Designed to present beginning students with an introduction to the main arguments concerning relativism, this provocative dialogue also serves as a model for thinking clearly about philosophical issues.
