After reading Chapter 2 (must use as a reference) of the textbook, answer:
What is an ethical belief that you feel strongly about, but you know is not shared by some people of other cultures? How does this relate to the concept of Relativism? Use and cite the text or other research. Refer to the concept of Relativism to give context for your belief and what relativist beliefs may be. This can be a belief that certain things are right or good, or that certain things are wrong or bad. (Be sure to differentiate between cultures and societies – a society like that of the U.S. contains many different cultures.)
Answer the question above and at least one of the bold prompts below in your original reply. Add content that helps you to explain the concept of relativism and your beliefs. You can use ideas from the remaining bold prompts as you reply to your classmates, or to my follow up questions.
Reflect on yourself:
What are the reasons for your belief? Try to explain as succinctly as possible the main reason(s) why you have the belief that this is right/wrong or good/bad.
Do you consider this to be something you were merely conditioned to believe, or do you think these beliefs represent your own independent thought and reflection? Explain. How do you see this idea in light of the concept of Relativism from the readings?
Reflect on the other:
If you were to try to explain and defend the contrary beliefs of some from another culture, how would you do that? (I.e., do your best to speak from their point of view about why they hold certain beliefs on this issue.)
If you had to identify an assumption, background conviction, or way of thinking that best explains why someone from another culture would have a different belief, what would that be?
Engage with the text:
Considering what the textbook says about moral relativism, would you consider your belief to be objective or relative? That is, do you think your belief is true (or at least stronger) in comparison to the other culture’s, or do you think it’s merely relative to your own culture?
If you think it’s true (or stronger), explain why. If you think it’s merely relative, choose one of the objections to relativism raised in the text, briefly explain it, and defend your position against that objection.
