Philosophy 201

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

Read the chapter in the Polman book on Relativism (chapter 3) and then answer the following questions.

1. Explain, in your own words what cultural relativism is. How does this differ from ethical relativism? (pp. 48–49)

2. What is the difference between the weak dependency thesis for ethical relativism,
and the strong dependency thesis? (pp. 50–51)

3. What, according to Pojman, is one of the benefits of accepting relativism (think in terms of the claims
being made in the chapter about tolerance with respect to conventional relativism). What is the problem
with claiming that ethical relativism entails tolerance? (pp. 55)

4. Explain the differences between the two types of ethical relativism: subjectivism and conventionalism.
Are you inclined to agree with one of these theories, or do you reject the idea that morality is relative?
Why or why not? (pp. 52–59)

5. One of the consequences of accepting the theory of ethical relativism is that we might be forced to
tolerate the actions of other cultures, even if they are in serious conflict with the moral standards of our culture.
This is especially problematic when you think about the actions of a person such as Hitler.
It is possible that a consequence of accepting the truth of ethical relativism would be that we have to be tolerant
of the actions of people like Hitler. Do you think this is one of the consequences of accepting ethical relativism?
And, if you are inclined to agree with relativism, are you okay with this consequence: that we have to tolerate
the action of people like Hitler? Why or why not? (pp. 56)

Ability, Disability, and Erasure

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

Consider the notion that an individual with a disability may feel primarily defined by his or her ability status. Also, consider the historical treatment of people with disabilities and the number of individuals who were euthanized and sterilized in the U.S. and across the globe due to having a disability.
For decades, individuals with disabilities were left in institutions, hidden away from the rest of society. Parents were told if their child was born with a disability, they should have them locked away. Consider in today’s society how people with disabilities are still “hidden.” Think about how many people you see each day that have a visible disability. While there are many hidden disabilities that should not be ignored, it is significant to recognize the limited number of people you see each day with disabilities. Also, consider how others react toward a person with a disability in public. Do they stare? Do they move away? Do they invade the person’s space and ask inappropriate questions? What experiences have you seen in public with a person with a disability? Why do you think society has marginalized this group for so long? Why are those with disabilities limited or eliminated from full participation in society today? Who has the right to decide what makes a “good life” and how is that decision made?
