In this module, you read about cultural relativism, the idea that people’s actions, activities, and beliefs should be understood and explained in terms of their own culture. After reading this module’s required resources, paying special attention to the information about cultural relativism, do you think that cultural relativism should always be applied without exception? For example, if a culture’s activities breached human rights, do you think that cultural relativism still applies? Why or why not?
In response to your peers, agree or disagree with their assessment of cultural relativism. Be sure to justify your opinion.
