Shweta Patro Reflection 1: Is morality objective or subjective? Due: 02/18/11 Current Moral and Social Issues Professor Heppard The behavioral conduct that defines what is right and wrong, also known as morality, is a very broad term. As a result, morality can never be totally subjective or objective. Every action or decision is somewhat subjective, because every person has a unique mental DNA made of his or her experiences and reactions to those experiences. Despite this subjectivity, morality as a whole seems to lean toward objectivity. There are a few common threads of human experience of behaviors which seem to be universal and distinctly human. These norms are human in nature, not just ones that fit into cultural or social standards. These objective morals are what govern many of the less complicated moral decisions people must make. Cultural universals are patterns or traits that characterize human cultures worldwide.
