With debates at the that means of ‘liberal society’ extra heated than ever, it is a well timed re-issue of a vintage textCan the stress among relativism and the ethical universalism present in modern politics be resolved in the framework of liberalism? How is liberal society to interpret the range of morals? Is pluralism the precise reaction? How does pluralism vary from the commonly condemned ethnocentric relativism –’liberalism for the Liberals, cannibalism for the cannibals’?Confronting liberal concept with its personal boundaries, Steven Lukes’ paintings is extra suitable than ever. whereas spotting the hazards of ethical imperialism, Lukes argues relativist place in response to determining truly exact cultural and ethical groups is incoherent. Drawing on paintings in anthropology and philosophy, he examines the character of social justice, the politics of id and human rights theory.From the alternate Paperback version.
