Write an essay that addresses the questions Cultural relativism and divine comma


Write an essay that addresses the questions Cultural relativism and divine command theory offer competing accounts of the ‘source of normativity’ (i.e. explanations of how obligations, permissions, and prohibitions are generated). Define each theory precisely by showing how it gives an account of the relationship between morality and culture/a divine entity. Explain a significant challenge that faces each theory. Are there objections to one theory that might apply to the other? Conclude by assessing the objections to these theories. Can they be overcome, or are the problems decisive? For example, your answer might consider whether Rachels has overstated the difficulties with cultural relativism or whether there is some third option not considered in the Euthyphro dilemma.
