A modernist revival?

It is this time of the year. Of the many changes of minds reported, this article is among the most uplifting. For it reports not a mere change of opinion about a specific hypothesis or personal attitude. No, it gives hope that the days of thoroughgoing cultural relativism are coming to an end. That postmodernist thinking is loosening its grip on the Western intellectual. But most importantly, it does so from a very non-scientistic perspective. It does so from a perspective that acknowledges and values the lessons relativism can teach us. Which makes it much more powerful as a response than many of the relativism-is-false-because-science-is-the-truth accounts presented by so many others.
