This review is from: Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air (Paperback)
When I first picked up this book, I thought it might be preachy and vitriolic. To my delight I was completely mistaken. It is very rational and precise; a logician's dream come true! It articulates simply and clearly several points that were on the periphery of my intuition. Now I have them before me in focused and concrete form. It helps clarify the difference between the positive and negative aspects of multiculturalism, demonstrates how true tolerance can only be rooted in an absolute, and finally explains why naturalism can not support morality--something I have been wondering about for a long time. I wish it came in audio as I would like to stamp its arguments permanently on my cerebral cortex as I continue in my philosophy major. I will return to this book again and again.
