For this assignment
propose a scenario where you or someone you know are confronted with a moral
dilemma relating to cultural diversity and multiculturalism. It cannot be the
same as what was covered in the week one discussion.
Cultural diversity refers to religious, sexual, racial, and
other forms of social difference. A moral dilemma is a situation in which one
must make a decision between two or more options such that the options involve
seemingly ethical and/or unethical conduct. Address the following questions:
What was the
situation? What did the dilemma involve?
What would a
subjective moral relativist say is the right approach to the dilemma? Why would
that kind of relativist say that?
What would a cultural
relativist say is the right approach to the dilemma? Why would that kind of
relativist say that? Is that approach correct?
What did you the
person confronting the dilemma decide to do? What moral justification did they
give? Is that approach morally correct?
Was there an objective
moral truth (the objectively right thing to do) in this situation? Why or why
Remember, the dilemma should be detailed with description and
dialogue. Regard the questions as requirements. This is an essay, so
rather than simply providing a list of brief answers to questions, provide an
in-depth reflection regarding a difficult ethical situation.
