A Refutation Of Moral Relativism - Interviews With An Absolutist, # 13117
Item Number: 13117


No issue is more fateful for civilization than moral relativism. History knows not one example of a successful society which repudiated moral absolutes. Yet most attacks on relativism have been either pragmatic (looking at its social consequences) or exhorting (preaching rather than proving), and philosophers' arguments againts it have been specialized, technical, and scholarly.

In his typical unique writing style, Peter Kreeft lets an attractive, honest, and funny relativist interview a "Muslim fundamentalist" absolutist so as not to stack the dice personally for absolutism. In an engaging series of personal interviews, every conceivable argument the "sassy Black feminist" reporter Libby gives against absolutism is simply and clearly refuted, and none of the many arguments for moral absolutism is refuted.

"Kreeft offers up a zesty mix of exhilarating conversation and solid logic in this entertaining and enlightening book. You won't find a better defense of moral absolutes or a more devastating critique of relativism than the one offered in these pages, yet Kreeft maintains his humorous touch throughout. An enjoyable and rewarding
book." -William K. Kilpatrick Author, "Why Johnny Can't Tell Right from Wrong"

"We've come to expect nothing less than the most readable and engaging books from the great apologist, Peter Kreeft. He has an uncanny knack to take profound truths and get them across in entertaining and exciting conversation, as he has done here. Once again, Kreeft does not disappoint us."
-Chuck Colson Author, "Loving God"

"Kreeft's scintillating humor has been honed in the school of Chesterton and Belloc. He loves to teach and is very good at it. He never lets a quarrel interrupt a good argument."
-Fr. Richard John Neuhaus Editor, First Things

"Lightning logician, master of the perennial philosophy, and on paper Chestertonian extraordinarie, Kreeft lays relativism to rest unanswerably. It's fun too! Plato would have loved it, and if you care about intellectual coherence, so will you."
-J. I. Packer Author, "Knowing God"
