Medical Ethics Darin Harootunian 9/30/11 3 problem can be developed into an objection against Cultural Relativism. But I won’t develop the objection further. I’ll let you think about it, in case someone wants to write an essay on it. Now I want to offer some suggestions on how to improve each of the three arguments that Rachels presents. We need to avoid formulating the arguments by using a premise that is justified by a considered moral judgment. This can be done fairly easily. Since Cultural Relativism is a linguistic theory of moral language, our arguments against it will be linguistic arguments. The Argument of Inter Cultural Criticism (Improved) 1) If Cultural Relativism is true, then a speaker ’s moral criticism of another culture amounts to nothing more than the speaker saying that his culture’s moral standard is not the other culture’s moral standard. 2) It’s not the case that a speaker’s moral criticism of another culture amounts to nothing more than the speaker saying t hat his culture’s moral standard is not the other culture’s moral standard.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
