Comparative ethics, a common morality, and human rights

Journal of Religious Ethics 33 (4):649-657 (2005)
Abstract
This essay is a brief attempt to summarize and evaluate the contributions that "Democracy and Tradition" makes to the field of comparative ethics. It is argued that the potential impact of these contributions would be strengthened by engagement with the common morality already imbedded in international human rights norms
