Relativism about knowledge or truth has always provoked the ire of philosophers. Recently, however, Alasdair MacIntyre has observed that 'relativism' ... is one of those doctrines that have by now been refuted a number of times too often.' Along with MacIntyre, Hilary Putnam and Richard Rorty have also argued that while relativism may be problematic, there are valuable insights in it that philosophers need to take notice of. This book reveals exactly what those relativistic insights are, and where they are to be found within the works of these three leading late-twentieth-century American philosophers.
