    Abstract. As with all other moral realists, so-called relaxed moral realists believe that there are moral truths. Unlike metaphysical moral realists, they do not take themselves to be defending a substantively metaphysical position when espousing this view, but to be putting forward a moral thesis from within moral discourse. In this paper, I employ minimalism about truth to examine .

In short, cultural relativism implies that no cultural values.

I shall defend moral realism against two influential versions of this challenge recently formulated by J. L. Mackie in his book .
