Ethics Fundamentals

What it all means


Objectivism

Objectivism

  • The view that some moral principles are valid for everyone


Cultural relativism

Cultural relativism

  • The view that an action is morally right if one’s culture approves it.

  • Moral rightness and wrongness are therefore relative to cultures

  • Example 1: Honor killing

  • Example 2: Female circumcision ( FGM)


Subjective relativism

Subjective relativism

  • The view that an action is morally right if one approves it.

  • Moral rightness and wrongness are relative not to the culture but to individuals.


Emotivism

Emotivism

  • The view that moral utterances are neither true nor false but are expressions of emotions or attitudes.

  • Implication: people cannot disagree over the moral facts because there are no moral facts- nothing is actually good or bad.
