Is Morality Relative?

Moral/ethical relativism: Morality can only be judged with respect to particular situations, within the standards of particular belief systems and socio-historical contexts.

Moral anti-realism: Morality cannot be proved with objective moral facts

Cultural relativism is the principle— one’s beliefs and activities should be interpreted in terms of one’s culture.

According to Cultural relativism—It would not be correct to judge one culture’s way of living as better than another as they are all just different and every standard is bound to the particular culture. 


Moral Absolutism: The view that there are universal, eternal moral truths for all societies.

Moral Realism: There are true moral statements which report objective moral facts
