Moreover, our own code has no special status; it is merely one among many. As we shall see, this basic idea is really a compound of several different thoughts.” (Pojman pg.140) We should believe that Cultural Relativism is based on several different thoughts therefore, he contradicts himself in saying that Cultural Relativism only exists as a result of the moral codes we were told in our culture were correct.
