a pattern of shift in ethics

“premodern” theistic ethics based on the character of a transcendent God who is good and has revealed that goodness
to
“modern” ethics based on a notion of universal human reason and experience and the human ability to discern objective right from wrong
to
“postmodern” notion that morality is the multiplicity of languages used to describe right from wrong
Sire summarizes that “Postmodernism can make no normative judgement about such a view. It can only observe and comment: so much the worse for those who find themselves oppressed by the majority.”
Sire: Universe, p. 183
