A quick note on ethical relativism
Hide Details5min 5s

Ethical relativism seems to pop up regularly in classes on ethical topics. It can become a huge distraction or digression from the topics at hand. I think it is ultimately a waste of time. If you are interested in following some of the arguments about relativism I suggest a look at these two short books:

A Refutation of Moral Relativism by Peter Kreeft

Ethics: A Very Short Introduction by Simon Blackburn
