  • The idea that the beliefs, values, norms, and so forth of a particular individual must be understood, examined, and studied in their cultural context. Culture affects these elements, and differences in such factors among individuals are relative to cultural encounters. In discerning the differences between right and wrong, therefore, absolute truths do not exist; all truths are relative and are the result of cultural experiences, and one culture cannot be judged by the values or standards of another.
