Students completing this course may not receive credit for MET MODERN WESTERN PHILOSOPHY. Remarks concerning twelve modern philosophers, from Francis Bacon to Bertrand Russell, and presenting a citizen standpoint involving a concluding discussion of science, one relating to the "against method" controversy associated with Paul Feyerabend.
Ethical relativism is the theory that holds that morality is relative to the norms of one's culture. That is, whether an action is right or wrong depends on the moral norms of the society in which it is practiced.
Cultural relativism in Anthropology is the idea that to begin to understand others, you need to understand it in the other’s context and worldview and (attempt) to put your own worldview aside - easier said than done, but we try.
Dec 17, · Cultural Relativism: A Moral Fallacy Cultural Relativism is the theory that all belief's are equally valid and that truth itself is relative, depending on the situation, environment and individual.

How French “Intellectuals” Ruined the West: Postmodernism and Its Impact, Explained. by Helen Pluckrose; Posted on March 27, May 3, ; P ostmodernism presents a threat not only to liberal democracy but to modernity itself.
That may sound like a bold or even hyperbolic claim, but the reality is that the cluster of ideas and values at the root of postmodernism have broken the bounds.
