Abstract

MARTINEZ-SAEZ, Santiago. RELATIVISMO ÉTICO. pers.bioét. [online]. 2008, vol.12, n.1, pp.29-41. ISSN 0123-3122.

The article offers a general description of the whirlwind sparked during slightly more than two centuries - as of the XVIII century - by a philosophical doctrine that began with the skepticism of the pre-Socratic era, briefly revived during the Enlightenment by Michel de Montaigne and others, to emerge solidly with the insular empiricists: Locke, Berkeley and Hume, who imposed their thinking to the point where it remains buoyant today, with numerous supporters among philosophers of three nonrealist lines of thinking on bioethics that are currently in vogue: sociobiologist, utilitarian pragmatic and radical liberal.

Keywords : Relativism; secular ethics; person; society; new morality; philosophical liberalism; moral models.
