IN 14 HOURS!!! 1 PAGE Meta-ethics  deals with the status of moral knowledge in the world, or our  epistemological claims regarding what we claim we know about the world.   Chapter 3 further discusses the perspectives of objectivism, cultural  relativism, subjective relativism that were briefly introduced in  Chapter 1.   Each of these perspectives carry their own position on the  status of moral principles in the world and the implications of holding  such positions. A few things: 1.)  Absolutism and Objectivism are related, but they are not the same.  Whereas with Absolutism there are no exceptions nor interpretation of  moral principles (think back to last week with Divine Command Theory),  objectivism insists that while moral principles are objectively true and  universally binding, there are exceptions due to context or  application.  Also, if a person is rationally incapable of recognizing  the moral principle, exceptions are made. But that does not erase the  major premise of objectivism – that is that moral principles exist  independently of cultural or subjective difference. In  formulating your thoughts on these meta-ethical perspectives and after  having watched the video in class on honor killing, reading Chapter 3,  and my summary , consider the following questions in your response to this forum: Honor Killing LINK : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDn5QcrwqdA 1.) Are you a cultural relativist? Why or why not? Here, use the example of honor killing from class. 2.) Does relativism breed an attitude of open mindedness and tolerance towards different cultures? Explain. WRITE 1 PAGE !!!
