Do you agree with Rachels’ critique of cultural relativism or do you think it is still best to think of morality within the context of a particular context?

On the surface, the variety of different ethical perspectives between different cultures creates a challenge for ethical inquiry. As James Rachels argues, ethical thinking does vary from culture to culture, but perhaps not as much as we think, and even though it may be tempting to conclude that each culture should be allowed to create their own systems of morality, Rachels points out that that leaves us in the uncomfortable position of not being able to use the strongest possible language when confronting horrific events such as the holocaust or slaver.
