Question and answer
Q: 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
A: "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. ]
