A central insight of 20th Century philosophy is the relationship between communal living and philosophical thinking. While some advocates of the sociology of knowledge were content to affirm a relativist perspective on values, others were concerned to articulate some criterion of evaluation in the face of the devastating social experiments of the last hundred years.
