A Reply on Behalf of the Relativist to Mark Mason's Justification of Universal Ethical Principles

Educational Philosophy and Theory 39 (6):657-675 (2007)

Mark Mason, in his ‘A Justification, After the Postmodern Turn, of Universal Ethical Principles and Educational Ideals’ Educational Philosophy and Theory, 37, attempts to justify transcultural multiculturalism. In this paper I argue that he fails to refute moral relativism, and that multiculturalism as he interprets it is not morally acceptable.
