Ethics and The Commitment to Truth


Malpas, J, Ethics and The Commitment to Truth, Tropos, 1, (1) pp. 19-32. ISSN 2036-542X (2009) [Refereed Article]


Contemporary Western societies, one might even say contemporary societies as such, are essentially pluralist in character - they are made up of a multiplicity of ethnicities, languages and cultures. Nowhere is this more evident than in Australia, perhaps the most multi-cultural society in the world, but is is also particularly apparent in many European countries including the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Italy, as well as the United States. Such plurality and multiplicity is unlikely to be much diminished by moves over recent years, in the United Kingdom and in Australia, to impose some basic level of cultural uniformity through various forms of citizenship education or examination.
