The difference between relativism, emotivism, and ethical egoism

Sep 13th, 2014

Ethical relativism is a combination of different beliefs that are focused to the point that there may not be any ethical criteria to classify something or some act to be ethical or not. It specifies that every act is judged planned and evaluated on individual and exclusive basis and there in no universal law for an act to be defined as right.

Emotivism says that the moral judgments are not divine or fixed for all being as a law but they may differ from speaker to speaker or feelings to feelings. Is specifies that something or some act may be classified be ones feeling as being totally unethical and impermissible whereas as per the other person it may be totally fine and appropriate.

Ethical egoism states that the feeling of being ethical or not comes from within one’s self. No one can guide you or dictate you on what’s right and what’s wrong. You decide that for your own self. It specifies that you can say stealing may be ethical in some scenarios and on the same hand it may be totally unethical in a different jargon
