Professional Custom Accounting: Summarize Drefcinski, Craig and Moreland’s critique of relativism
1. Summarize Drefcinski, Craig and Moreland’s critique of relativism. Recall the distinction between ‘descriptive relativity’ and normative/ethical/moral/prescriptive relativism. Recall the fallacy involved in moving from a mere description to an ethical prescription. Recall Drefcinski’s five arguments against cultural relativism in particular. Extra credit is available for outlining the difference between the epistemological humility of acknowledging one’s limited perspective versus the ontological denial of facts independent of human experience.
