multiple questions – ethics – Studypool

I’m working on a Sociology question and need guidance to help me study.

QUESTION 1

  1. Match the Key Term to the prompt that fits BEST
    – A. B. C. D. E. F. G. H. Morality is just a product of our culture and moral upbringing. We don’t really have any basis to criticize the morality of others. Moral truths are based on whatever a person’s social group or culture approves of, whatever they have agreed to believe together.
    – A. B. C. D. E. F. G. H. Moral truths are primarily expressions of emotion. If I call some act “immoral,” I mainly mean that it makes me angry and upset and that I wish people would stop doing it.
    – A. B. C. D. E. F. G. H. Moral truths are true independent of what any individual person thinks or feels about them. Moral truths are based on facts about the world. Morality is informed by facts, not merely desires and preferences.
    – A. B. C. D. E. F. G. H. Moral facts are special kinds of facts unlike ordinary descriptive facts of the world. I know they are true because it is self-evident once I understand the claim being made. Moral truths are always the same, for all people, at all times, in all contexts. No exceptions!
    – A. B. C. D. E. F. G. H. Moral truths are determined by whatever I judge to be right or wrong. If I think a thing is morally good, then that makes it morally good. Everyone else can say the same thing about themselves. There is no truth or fact of the matter apart from our own opinions and what we each conceive in our own minds.
    – A. B. C. D. E. F. G. H. Moral truths are important to seek out because we are all ultimately self-centered. It’s just human nature to put ourselves first.
    A. subjectivism
    B. ethical egoism
    C. cultural relativism
    D. emotivism
    E. absolutism
    F. objective realism
    G. self-interest
    H. psychological egoism

QUESTION 2

  1. Ethical relativism is true because people in Los Angeles have moral beliefs that are very different from the moral beliefs of people in Chicago.” This is not a good basis for an argument for ethical relativism because observing that people hold differing moral beliefs does not tell us what people ought to do. It only tells us about
    prescriptive
    descriptive ethics
    ethical egoism
    normative ethics

QUESTION 8

  1. I don’t understand why most Americans don’t object to their country going to war all the time. It would be immoral for the people of California to start attacking and killing the people of Arizona simply because the state government was breaking federal law. So it is immoral for the U.S. to attack and kill people of other countries because those countries’ governments are breaking international law.

    law of non-contradiction
