Question description

No sources needed. No MLA style needed. Opinion based. Extremely short responses is all that is required.

  1. Herodotus says that people prefer the customs of their own country over those of all other countries. That may have been true in his day, but do you think that is true today?
  2. Herodotus’s example of what the ancient Greeks and Indians did with the bodies of their dead parents clearly shows that cultures have different customs. But does that make the case for ethical relativism? Why or why not?
  3. Though the two societies (Greeks and Indians) did it in very different ways, both seem to be engaged in honoring their deceased parents. Do you agree? Why or why not?

Post your thoughts and comments to all the above questions after reading and considering the writing of Herodotus.
