In considering the importance of culture to ethics please help me answer the below questions:


1. Are some cultures more moral than others? Please give examples and explain
your position. Can you describe a moral standard that is at variance with your
own ethical system?
2. Are there any universal moral standards or are all ethical principles a matter of custom and culture? Give examples of universal ethical principles if you believe they exist and why you think they are universal. If you do not
believe universal ethical principles exist, explain why.

  • General Psychology -

    The first thing you need to do is define morality. Do some research -- especially noting the concepts of morality as espoused by Jesus, Moses, Mohammad, Buddha, and Confucius.

    Is there a universal concept of morality? Or is it defined differently by different cultures?

  • Ethics in Contemporary Society -

    Are some cultures more moral than others? Please give examples and explain
    your position. Can you describe a moral standard that is at variance with your
    own ethical system?
