Question and answer
give an example of something that one culture might regard as a virtue that another culture might not? Explain why this could lead to relativism
"Spare the rod and spoil the child." "A child should be seen and not heard." The US culture prior to WWII considered this necessary and the practice a virtue, [ spanking and keeping the kids silent and well behaved. The US 21st Century cultures consider both concepts to be non-virtuous. Experiencing both concepts as absolutes within a single lifetime would lead a person to: 1] Accept
relativism as a piece of the human value system, or, 2] conclude one concept is wrong, the other right and that the two are mutually exclusive. ]
