Philosophy, Relativism, Plato, Aquinas, Kant
The following essay is an attempt to justify philosophically the possibility of a 'natural law' or prescriptive cross-experiential judgment. To accomplish this task, an examination of contemporary relativism and indication of what is wrong with that position is necessary at first. Why argue against something if its sound? The second stage is a survey of certain key thinkers on law, justice and judgment. Their thoughts will yield clues or suggestions about what is needed for a natural law. The third section lays out this author's thoughts on how to solve the problem. The final section is objections and replies.
