Ayesa Speaking
I've talked with quite a few people, including everyone in this class and people in the anthropology department. Here's the list of possible implications I came up with. You'll notice that there is a big emphasis on cross-cultural items because of the anthropology people.
  • Ethical relativism implies a high degree of tolerance for other moral views - especially in other cultures.
  • Ethical relativism implies that we should not judge or criticize other cultures using our moral standards.
  • Ethical relativism implies that we should take a hands-off approach to other cultures. We shouldn't interfere with their ways of living.
