Book description

Relativism can be found in all philosophical traditions and subfields of philosophy. It is also a central idea in the social sciences, the humanities, religion and politics. This is the first volume to map relativistic motifs in all areas of philosophy, synchronically and diachronically. It thereby provides essential intellectual tools for thinking about contemporary issues like cultural diversity, the plurality of the sciences, or the scope of moral values.

The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Relativism is an outstanding major reference source on this fundamental topic. The 57 chapters by a team of international contributors are divided into nine parts:

  • Relativism in non-Western philosophical traditions
  • Relativism in Western philosophical traditions
  • Relativism in ethics
  • Relativism in political and legal philosophy
  • Relativism in epistemology
  • Relativism in metaphysics
  • Relativism in philosophy of science
  • Relativism in philosophy of language and mind
  • Relativism in other areas of philosophy.

Essential reading for students and researchers in all branches of philosophy, this handbook will also be of interest to those in related subjects such as politics, religion, sociology, cultural studies and literature.
