Define 'universal'.

And ~'good and evil are mere points of view' is very far from your 'some things are clearly good and others are clearly evil, but there's plenty of room in between'.
No 'clearly' anything.
I don't think they're inherently different perspectives, they just have different emphases. The one I stated emphasizes that some parts of the state space resemble absolute morality; the one they stated emphasizes that other parts of the state space do not. Both recognize that the state space contains a combination of both types of morality, though.
One conception denies you can call something 'good' or 'evil' by using objective criteria and another affirms it.
And there are supposed to not be 'different' conceptions - despite you naming them 'perspectives'?
