The second issue with morality is the cost of commitment. This was previously discussed above with the Mohists (utilitarian) and the Yangists (hedonists), however this cost of commitment is broken down into three types: 1) maximal cost-risk of hypocrisy, 2) minimal cost-risk of triviality, and 3) intermediate – the balance of costs and relevance (Magagna, 2014). The maximal cost-risk of hypocrisy means exactly as it is named. The risk of strong Confucian rituals can weaken the trust between people because it becomes unclear who is connected with morality. This becomes a hypocrisy because a person may be following something that they themselves do not partake in.
The controversy arises when the advocates of formal value supports have sometimes been quite aggressive in their attacks on non-formal value. In turn, the non-formal value supporters often have accused a too abstract understanding of humanity that vacates or confuses some of the central issues of morality. Reith 2006, Timmons 2010 have begun to reexamine the non-formal value and its possible role within a contemporary understanding of the moral life. I suggest, a distinguishing feature of moral value is in other features of the moral life, such as moral decisions and moral problems, similar questions can be asked. What is the difference between moral decisions and non- moral decisions?
The Argument over Universality of Human Right and Cultural Relativism (RENTELN VIEW) Whether the right recognized in the universal Declaration of Human Rights and the international Human Rights covenant are universal? Is a question that has led to many human right scholars to pose a controversial debate on the aspect of the universality of human rights. Like order scholar who have centre their controversies on the nature of human right, its source, justification and origin . But Renteln argument deals with the issue of universality of human right which is aim to achieve an international commitment in the implementation of human rights that is currently being witnessed though with respect to the concept of a cultural diversity . However, it
As to reach the truth, or what is fundamentally right, we need to challenge, which can only be done if there is differentiation in thought. Without challenge, without differentiation in thought, we lose our ability as humans to distinguish between the right and wrong, the facts and falsehoods. We give others this power to make those decisions for us, which I think is dangerous. The people’s loss of individuality to this power meant the loss of truth. The loss of humanity.
Even though an individual may intend to do a good thing, someone may unintentionally come to harm. The unwavering issue with ethics is the inability to have them uniformly implemented. As long as there are differences in opinions there will always be conflict in the world, and the view of one’s ethics is truly in the eye of the
It is important for people to express themselves and to be original, instead of sticking to the status quo. If people stick to the status quo it will negatively impact new styles from being developed. In certain situations it is important to be a leader instead of a follower. This would be the case in the field of fashion as well as, technology and science. People stepping outside of the standards of the norm police is necessary for innovation.
Due to the myriad of variations among different cultures, many publications of findings would be very ethnocentric to the culture in which the anthropologist belongs to. It is important that cultural relativism is considered when studying personal aspects of culture, like clothing, language, food, and religion. Additionally, when studying aspects such as law, politics, and morality, I believe it is important not to characterize them as “right” or “wrong,” because what is “right” to one person, could very well be “wrong” to someone of a different
Next, he puts forward a more moderate version of the principle by replacing equal moral significance with anything of moral significance. The nature of the principle, according to Singer, is contentious, for if applied has the potential to change everything about our values and lives. One of the reasons as to why that is the case is that the principle does not care for the proximity of the one
