This book is a bit different from others in that it is a transcription of taped interviews between a moral absolutist ("Isa," an Arab college professor) and a relativist ("Libby," a feminist journalist). The debate/dialogue becomes heated at times, but sheds much light on both world-views. The book exposes the beliefs and assumptions underlying moral relativism and the ramifications.Admittedly, the text can become a little difficult at times due to the "jargon of philosophy," yet the book as a whole is quite readable, enjoyable, and informative.
