Analytic Ethics

What is ethical (or moral) relativism?

There are two kinds: descriptive moral relativism is the view that different cultures have different moral beliefs; prescriptive or normative moral relativism is the view that the whole of what’s right is what people in a given society think is right. The result of this view is that moral disagreement can’t be rationally debated.
