The Appearance of Faultless Disagreement: Dialogue

Dialogue 49 (4):603-616 (2010)

ABSTRACT A common argument for relativism invokes the appearance of faultless disagreement. I contend that the appearance is possible only under conditions that disqualify it as evidence: gross ignorance or irrationality, or else a prior commitment to an especially crude and implausible form of relativism. R??SUM?? L???un des arguments commun??ment avanc?? en faveur du relativisme repose sur l???apparente possibilit?? que des jugements non erron??s puissent??tre divergents. Je cherche?? montrer qu???une telle observation n???est possible qu????? des conditions qui la rendent inadmissible?? titre de preuve: l???acceptation d???une grossi??re ignorance, de l???irrationalit??, ou encore un attachement pr??alable?? une forme peu plausible de relativisme particuli??rement extr??me.
