How do today’s young people understand ethics?
Rev. Dr. Charles Curran discusses the need to introduce students to the idea of the “common good” in order to counteract a general tendency towards ethical relativism.

Curran also suggests that relativism impacts religious faiths by emphasizing strong similarities and differences.
