Moral Consensus and Social Change

This thesis will discuss theories such as historical relativism: past moral changes are valuable in present day society, radical moral change: morals have been changed radically through generations, moral consensus: when and how does the majority of society agree on morals, and cosmopolitanism: as humans we belong to the single race of humanity, and it is important to empathize, understand, and accept those whom are different from us. I argue that cosmopolitan values will lead to moral progress.
