Evaluate one major problem a proponent of ethical relativism faces. (In other words, describe an objection to the theory and discuss any reasonable responses a proponent of the theory could make.) Is it possible for anyone to say that any society’s code is morally superior to any other’s? Why or why not?
Provide a definition of ethical subjectivism and compare and contrast it with cultural relativism–how are they similar? how are they different?
