What is Relativism?

In Patrick Greenough & Michael Lynch (eds.), Truth and Relativism. Clarendon Press. 13--37 (2006)
Abstract
Many philosophers, however, have been tempted to be relativists about specific domains of discourse, especially about those domains that have a normative character. Gilbert Harman, for example, has defended a relativistic view of morality, Richard Rorty a relativistic view of epistemic justification, and Crispin Wright a relativistic view of judgments of taste.¹ But what exactly is it to be a relativist about a given domain of discourse?
