Therefore each culture and religion, with its own ethical perspectives, must be respected and appreciated” (1992: 99). qxd 28/07/2009 16:44 Page 32 segun gbadegesin no objective basis for a cross-cultural judgment of values. But granted that the value relativist is motivated by the desire for cross-cultural tolerance, it seems clear that she cannot at once motivate a coherent notion of cross-cultural tolerance unless this is also a value that all cultures already affirm; otherwise it can have no basis.

They say, for instance, “my son, what you have done is wrong because you treat your wife badly. Don’t you realize that she has feelings? ” In other words, the elders appeal to considerations that give meaning to the principles of interest, fairness and respect. It would therefore be wrong to suggest that these principles are exclusively Western. True, they are formulated by Western philosophers in their philosophical discourse, but they are also universally recognized principles applicable to interpersonal relationships.

The distinction we have made between cultural pluralism and value relativism is crucial. Though the latter appears to ride on the back of the former, we may affirm cultural pluralism while we reject value relativism. The fact of cultural differences and the importance of understanding it and bearing it in mind before we make judgments of rationality and morality are the emphasis of cultural pluralism. The thesis of value relativism is stronger, moving from the observation that there are cultural differences to the inference that there can be no valid cross-cultural standards for evaluating conduct or judging values.
