Wit & Wisdom: What Exactly Is Wrong With Moral Relativism?

Join us on Thursday, November 9th in the Lovell Showroom for Wit & Wisdom: “What Exactly Is Wrong With Moral Relativism?”, presented by Seth Tichenor.

Most of the world‘s great wisdom traditions presume that moral truths are absolute. Yet anyone looking around can see the enormous diversity, conflict, and even contradictions that exist in moral life. Is morality relative to a persons culture or perspective? How do we know, exactly, whether one moral position is true or not? Does it even make sense to talk about morality being “wrong “if it is, in fact, relative? And, is there some path between relativism and absolutism that can make morality, meaningful and workable?

Doors to the Lovell Showroom open at 6pm with food and beverages available via the Taproom window, talk starts at 7pm. All ages welcome and never a cover.
