  1. Grounding Human Rights in a Pluralist World: Assessing the Strategies of Minimalism.Grace Yia-hei Kao - 2003 - Dissertation, Harvard University
    Can human rights be defended against the persistent charges that they are culturally relative or ethnocentrically tied to only the philosophical commitments of the modern West? This thesis considers how human rights might be justified in light of a growing acceptance of multiculturalism, and suspicion regarding universalist approaches in ethics. In particular, it examines the increasingly popular strategy today of defending human rights on the least controversial premises possible, thereby undercutting the need for any particular metaphysics, religious tenet, account of (...)

  • A Pluralist Approach to ‘the International’ and Human Rights for Sexual and Gender Minorities.Po-Han Lee - 2021 - Feminist Review 128 (1):79-95.
    Queer theorists have considered the problems concerning the political strategy of using LGBT rights to justify racist xenophobia and using homo/transphobia to consolidate heterosexist nationalism. Their timely interventions are important in exposing state violence in the name of human rights and sovereign equality, but they have offered no alternative. They may also have reinforced the assumption of state science. This assumption is based on a trinity structure of the nation-state-sovereignty of ‘modern, self-determining men’, who are against each other and thereby (...)

  • Justifying Reasons, Motivating Reasons, and Agent Relativism in Ethics.John J. Tilley - 2004 - Philosophical Studies 118 (3):373-399.
    According to agent relativism, each person's moral requirements are relative to her desires or interests. That is, whether a person morally ought to ø depends on what interests or desires she has. Some philosophers charge that the main argument for agent relativism trades on an ambiguity in the term "reason," "reason for action,'' or the like. This paper shows that although the argument for agent relativism may indeed harbor an ambiguity, the ambiguity is no Achilles’ heel. To remove it is (...)

  • The Problem for Normative Cultural Relativism.John J. Tilley - 1998 - Ratio Juris 11 (3):272-290.
    The key problem for normative (or moral) cultural relativism arises as soon as we try to formulate it. It resists formulations that are (1) clear, precise, and intelligible; (2) plausible enough to warrant serious attention; and (3) faithful to the aims of leading cultural relativists, one such aim being to produce an important alternative to moral universalism. Meeting one or two of these conditions is easy; meeting all three is not. I discuss twenty-four candidates for the label "cultural relativism," showing (...)
