Relativism. Cultural Anthropology gives three
distinct meanings of cultural relativism a moral
stance that requires anthropologists to suspend
moral and ethical judgments when interacting with
a culture different from their own, a
methodological strategy that allows the
anthropologist to pay specific attention to the
uniqueness of a culture, and an epistemological
position that cultures are unique and therefore
knowledge about different cultures is almost
inherently not comparable. (Sec. 1.3).In your
forum contribution a. Discuss what you see as
the strengths and weaknesses of each of these
three kinds of relativism. b. Identify one belief
or practice in another culture that you find
puzzling, strange, or troubling, and then discuss
the extent that cultural relativism is a useful
approach to understanding and interacting with
the people who hold it.

c. Discuss the extent that cultural relativism
would be a useful approach to understanding and
interacting with people in your own society that
did (or do) the same. d. Explore the extent to
which whether one is studying in one's own
country or in another makes a difference in the
applicability of cultural relativism to one's
research. Your initial response should be at
least 150 words in length. Build on the ideas and
terminology in the text and your own ideas to
support your answers. Please support your claims
with examples from the text, required and
recommended material, and/or scholarly articles.
