The Relativist believes that there is a satisfying intermediate position between the view that there are objective facts about right and wrong (Realism) and the view that there are no such facts at all (Nihilism). The intermediate view is that while there are such facts they are thoroughly relativized to particular communities. Boghossian will argue that the existence of such an intermediate position is illusory: we only have a choice between Realism and Nihilism. He will conclude by arguing for Realism.
Paul Boghossian is the Silver Professor of Philosophy at NYU's Philosophy Department and a Distinguished Research Professor at the University of Birmingham in the UK. He is the director of the New York Institute of Philosophy and the Director of NYU's Global Institute for Advanced Study and served as chair of Philosophy from 1994-2004.
Boghossian's research interests are primarily in epistemology, the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of language. He has written on a variety of topics, including color, rule-following, eliminativism, naturalism, self-knowledge, a priori knowledge, analytic truth, realism, relativism, the aesthetics of music, and the concept of genocide.
