Moral relativism attracts and repels. What is defensible in it and what is to be rejected? Do we as human beings have no shared standards by which we can understand one another? Can we abstain from judging one another's practices? Do we truly have divergent views about what constitutes good and evil, virtue and vice, harm and welfare, dignity and humiliation, or is there some underlying commonality that trumps it all? These questions turn up everywhere, from Montaigne's essay on cannibals, to the UN Declaration of Human Rights, to the debate over female genital mutilation. They become ever more urgent with the growth of mass immigration, the rise of religious extremism, the challenges of Islamist terrorism, the rise of identity politics, and the resentment at colonialism and the massive disparities of wealth and power between North and South. Are human rights and humanitarian interventions just the latestform of cultural imperialism? By what right do we judge particular practices as barbaric? Who are the real barbarians? In this provocative new book, the distinguished social theorist Steven Lukes takes an incisive and enlightening look at these and other challenging questions and considers the very foundations of what we believe, why we believe it, and whether there is a profound discord between "us" and "them."… (mere)

I never had must interest in ethics, and so I figured that this small version would be a nice look at the state of contemporary ethics - which I would say it succeeds at, however superficially some of the content is gone over. For me though, true ethics starts with Kant and ends with Nietzsche. It is for this very reason that I have never taken much interest in it. Ethics today is more an issue of politics than it is one of "living the good life," and I feel that this shows through with the content that is presented (which in all fairness he does cover a large base). I personally hold politics in little regard, and so this book, though only about 150 pages, became a bore to me. Nevertheless it is not without it's merit. It gives plenty to mull over and is a great reference source for further readings. ( )
