One of the egoism perspectives relative to ethics is the ethical egoism that holds that it is imperative and appropriate for an achievement to be decently right that it capitalizes on one’s self interest. Rational egoism is the second one, and it holds that it is important and productive for an action to be rational that it exploits on an individual egotism (Flack, 1992). Psychological egoism, on the other hand, states that a person’s prosperity or self-interest is the decisive objective in life, and it is that one objective that motivates behavior, as well as motivations.
Sociological relativism relative to ethics from a personal point of view would be said to be a theory of descriptive ethics concerned with what is while the cultural relativism would be viewed to be a theory of philosophical ethics as well as what should be and should not be (Jhingran, 2001).While social relativism believes that it is probable an individual’s culture’s ethical principles would be wrong in association to another, cultural relativism goes on to state that in case there are diversities or difference in cultural principles, then there is evidence that there are no collective moral standards to be adhered to worldwide (Jhingran, 2001).That explains why there is divergence in various cultures starting with the Western culture that holds that meat eating has no problems.
