What is moral absolutism?

Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 12 Jan 2010

This is also called moral realism and suggests that morality really is out there in the world, there really is somewhere a moral fact that for instance it is wrong to steal.

Where these moral facts are, and what they look like and their actual nature is up for grabs, but moral realism is saying that there really are actual truths out that we can strive to attain knowledge of.
