Thread: After studying the Reading & Study materials, compose a 500-600 word argument that is objective, carefully-constructed, and free of emotion (and hence it should not contain any exclamation points) in support of your opinion about ethical relativism. First, explain exactly what ethical relativism is. Don’t simply re-state the reading, but provide an explanation of relativism using your own words but also showing that you did the reading and understand the issue. Second, present the strengths and weaknesses of ethical relativism. Here you should bring into play the arguments for and against relativism that are discussed in the assigned reading in chapter two of our textbook Moral Reasoning. You must read this chapter with close attention, for some of the arguments that it discusses are eventually rejected as fallacious. The more cogent arguments are not presented until the second half of the chapter, where the author sides with the overwhelming majority of ethicists in concluding that ethical relativism is false. Finally, argue either that ethical relativism is true or that it is false, explaining why you think your opinion is correct. Whichever side you take on the issue, please treat both sides with respect.  Be sure to carefully define your terms. You are encouraged to support your position with rational arguments, fitting examples, and expert sources. Any quotes or information used from sources other than yourself must be cited using footnotes in current Turabian format and will not count towards the total word count.
