The book starts with considering various questions on moral relativism and looks at it from all different angles. The author tries hard to bring up virtually all criticisms of the topic. Though he drops them all in favor of moral relativism, he picks up a position that is not totally relativistic in the end.

I think this was perhaps the best book I've read so far about morality and ethics.

Many interesting thoughts and examples here. I liked the book, although my heart beat increased occasionally.

Very solid explanation of the theory, attack of the theory, and reconstruction of a modified theory. For: philosophy majors, anyone that ever said, "it's all relative"
