What is Morality
Your readings in this unit will focus your attention on three very basic theories of morality: Cultural Relativism – the theory that morality is “about” which cultural conventions are accepted. Simple Subjectivism – the theory that morality is “about” individual preferences. Emotivism – the theory that morality is “about” expressions of attitudes Now that you’ve had a chance to think a little bit about what morality might be like, respond in the thread below to the following prompt: The three theories presented in this unit’s reading tempt our intuitions in various ways, but each creates serious problems for our understanding of ethics. In particular, some of the theories suggest that Moral Disagreement never occurs or that Moral Progress is impossible. Do you think that Moral Disagreement occurs? Do you think that Moral Progress happens? Why or why not?
