Summary
"Moral universalism is the idea that some system of ethics applies to all people regardless of race, color, nationality, religion, or culture. The contributors to this latest volume in the NOMOS series investigate the idea that, far from denying the existence of pluralities, moral universalism presupposes them. At the same time, the search for universally valid principles of morality is deeply challenged by diversity. The fact of pluralism presses us to explore how universalist principles interact with ethical, political, and social particularisms." "These essays bring philosophical, legal, and political perspectives to bear on core questions: Which forms of pluralism are conceptually compatible with moral universalism, and which ones can be accommodated in a politically stable way? Can pluralism generate innovations in understandings of moral duty? How is convergence on the validity of legal and moral authority possible in circumstances of pluralism? As the contributors to the book demonstrate in a wide variety of ways, these normative, conceptual, and political questions deeply intertwine."--Jacket
