Cultural Relativism

“Darius, a king of ancient Persia, was intrigued by the variety of cultures he met in his travels. He had found, for example, that the Callatians, who lived in India, ate the bodies of their dead fathers. The Greeks, of course, did not do that—the Greeks practiced cremation and regarded the funeral pyre as the fitting way to dispose of the dead.

Darius thought that a sophisticated outlook should appreciate the differences between cultures. One day, to teach this lesson, he summoned some Greeks who were at his court and asked what it would take for them to eat the bodies of their dead fathers. They were shocked, as Darius knew they would be. They replied that no amount of money could persuade them to do such a thing. Then Darius called in some Callatians and, while the Greeks listened, asked them what it would take for them to burn their dead fathers’ bodies. The Callatians were horrified and told Darius not to speak of such things."

Sa Cultural Relativism, hindi natin pwedeng husgahan ang kultura ng iba base sa ating sariling kultura. Ang kinagisnan nating sariling kultura ay iba kesa sa kultura ng iba kung kaya't dapat nating respetuhan kung ano ang praktis ng ibang mga tao sa kanilang lugar, sa kanila lang iyon at ang atin ay atin lang din na dapat din nilang igalang. . . .

Abangan ang programang "Back Subject ni Dj Marsh" na kung saan muli nating balikan ang mga aralin noong tayo ay absent sa klase o di kaya tulog tayo noon sa classroom. Mga usaping dapat natin ma-review nang sa ganun ay may maisagot tayo sa ating mga estudyante pag tinanong nila ang kanilang assignment sa eskwela. Cheers.
