If we may learn anything from the intellectual experiences of the past, it is the fact that only relative values are accessible to human reason…. (201-2)

Absolute justice is an irrational ideal, or, what amounts to the same, an illusion – one of the eternal illusions of mankind (201-2).

Kelsen, “What is Justice?” Relativism imposes upon the individual the difficult tasks of deciding for himself what is right and what is wrong. This, of course, implies a very serious responsibility, the most serious moral responsibility a man can assume….The fear of personal responsibility is one of the strongest motives of the passionate resistance against relativism (202).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
