Roger Scruton on Moral Relativism

“The obvious thing to say about moral relativism is that it is what is left when the religious worldview collapses. And that is perhaps one reason why it is so prevalent now.”

  • Do you need to be religious in order to discover truth? 

“No you don’t, and ofcourse that has been one of the efforts of philosophy down the centuries. Aristotle is only one example, Kant is another; the effort to produce a fulcrum in which our worldview can turn (which is simply not our individual desires).
