About this book
The authors of "Why Truth Matters" explore this topical and controversial religious and cultural issue in a highly accessible manner. It is obviously an inflammatory subject, but in their characteristically opinionated yet clear style, Benson and Stangroom present a very balanced overview, drawing on wide-ranging examples.
Explores instances of the oppression of women in the name of religious and cultural norms and how these issues play out both in the community and in the political arena. Drawing on philosophical concerns such as truth, relativism, knowledge and ethics, this title is a rallying call for a progressive politics that is committed to universal values.
