Considers the effects of moral relativism on the writings of prominent authors in the fields of literature, foreign policy, economics, social policy, education, philosophy, and theology. Discusses the relevance of the political regime of modern democracy and the intellectual regime of modern science to the pervasive influence of moral relativism in our culture.

Reviews

"I find their selection to be an interesting sample of intellectuals and social philosophers. They should attract a wide range of readers. . . . Morrisey and Eidelberg raise some interesting and provocative questions about democracy. Those who contend the ethos of a democracy is a sufficient moral guide to produce ethical outcomes would profit from this book. . . . the manuscript is a sound one and using relativism as the analytical tool has proved to be effective over the political spectrum." - Marvin Maurer
