Ethnocentrism | ethics in a pandemic world


Chapter 3 explores the metaethical principle of cultural relativism.



Metaethics is the study of the nature of ethics

Normative ethics is the study of ethical action

Analyzes the meaning of moral language and metaphysics of moral facts

Evaluates standards for the rightness and wrongness of actions

More philosophical in nature as it analyzes the nature of ethics and morality

More practical in nature

The pondering of metaethics is vitally important. Metaethics is not designed to drive your ethical actions so to speak. It is designed as a cautionary tale to consider carefully what you believe.

Ethnocentrism, most simply, can be viewed as looking at, perhaps even judging, everything and everyone else by what we believe, by how we view good and bad, by what is “normal” for us.
