I 5
Society/relativism/ethics/P. Singer: Thesis: Ethics is not dependent on the society in which we live. It is true, though, if we accept the consequentialism that actions can be assessed differently in one situation than in another because of their consequences. But this does not open the door to any relativism. The overriding goal is "Do what increases happiness and reduces suffering".
