Is there an absolute standard of good and bad beyond one's the personal opinions?

Question asked by: mtalaisa

Asked on: 17 Mar 2010

This depends whether you believe in a position in ethics that is called REALISM, this is absolutism in the moral arena.

If you do believe in moral realism, then the answer would be yes that there are moral truths that exist outside of the personal domain.

For many who are not realists, but are anti-realists, quasi-realists or simply even something like the more naive relativist, then that is not the case.
