Velleman’s book is a very welcome addition to recent literature that reconsiders moral relativism as a viable moral view. The field of moral philosophy benefits from his willingness to stake out bold and engaging positions that neither conventional defenders of robust, universalist forms of moral realism or of moral relativism find comfortable. His choice of venue, Open Book Publishers, makes this work more accessible to a broader range of scholars and the interested public. His status in the discipline will hopefully influence others to consider a more accessible venue for their work.
