"Although originally based in pre-Socratic views that were subsequently refuted by Aristotle and Plato, moral and epistemological relativism was reborn and became pervasive in elite intellectual circles during the 'Enlightenment' of the 18th and 19th centuries when natural law was abandoned for the subjectivism inherent in naturalism. Virtually every field of knowledge has since been undermined by this myopic view, including law, economics, history, philosophy, psychology, biology, art, literature, theology, etc., with some more damaged than others and some fields such as sociology being based entirely on such a fallacy."
