...owe us an apology for making us to think that the big human choice is between relativism and dogmatism. The truth may be tricky, but it’s not the "truth" or the Truth. It’s just the truth. Even Rorty knows the Holocaust really happened, for example. That’s not to say, of course, that many things aren’t relative. And we can neither live nor think well without some dogma, some trust in things unseen. The Europe that Ratzinger/B16 frees from the tyranny of relativism will be the Europe of faith and reason.
