Light: Cultural Relativism


Cultural Relativism is NOT Moral Relativism.

The Difference between the two is:

Moral Relativism is the denial of the existance of right and wrong.

Cultural Relativism is the acceptance of these laws, but placed in the proper Cultural Context.

The fact is that we decide for ourselves what is right and wrong in an area thats neither.

It depends upon who you are talking to, that decides what is right.

So: you do accept Natural Law.

And recognise the uncertainty in the Grey Areas.

For instance: in Europe, burping is considered Rude.

In China you thank the chef by burping out loud.

There are thousands of these examples and it depends upon with who you are talking, to decide what is right.

Offcourse Cultural Relativism does NOT excuse Crime...!
