Despite the considerable influence of relativistic styles of thought, however, the dominant position in moral philosophy rejects relativism altogether. Gilligan’s claim that men and women have different ideas and understandings about morality has drawn the attention of psychologists, philosophers, and social scientist, and has given rise to considerable debate among feminist scholars. A somewhat similar approach is taken by another group of feminist scholars who also view knowledge as a social and political construct shaped by people’s origins and positions in the social structure. J. Piaget argued that he had provided psychological grounds for rejecting the relativistic view that all knowledge claims are equally valid. He believed that he was able to show that some ways of thinking, such as the ways scientists and logicians think, are developmentally superior to others.
