„No idea working alone has ever demoralized society, and there have been plenty of ideas simpler and more exciting than Relativism.“

—  Jacques Barzun Historian 1907 - 2012

"The Bugbear of Relativism," p. 89
The Culture We Deserve (1989)
Contexto: Can an idea — a notion as abstract as Relativism — produce by itself the effects alleged? cause all the harm, destroy all the lives and reputations? I am as far as anyone can be from denying the power of ideas in history, but the suggestion that a philosophy (as Relativism is often called) has perverted millions and debased daily life is on the face of it absurd. No idea working alone has ever demoralized society, and there have been plenty of ideas simpler and more exciting than Relativism.
