In this volume, Peter Kreeft argues that no idea is more fateful for civilization than moral relativism, and that history knows not one example of a successful society which repudiated moral absolutes. Kreeft claims most attacks on relativism have been either pragmatic (looking at its social consequences) or exhorting (preaching rather than proving), and philosophers’ arguments against it have been specialized, technical, and scholarly. In this fun and accessible volume, Kreeft sets up a dialogue between an absolutist and a relativist that fleshes out the major arguments for both sides, ultimately finding the relativist position to be untenable.
