Relativity and Degrees of Relationality
Author(s)Spencer II, John Haven
MetadataShow full item record
Some things are relative. Left and right are relative to spatial orientation, for example, and legality is relative to jurisdiction. We also wonder about more controversial cases. Is morality relative to culture? Is color relative to type of perceiver? In this essay I am not concerned with any particular relativistic thesis. Rather, I am concerned with the prior question: What is it for one thing to be relative to another?
