is such an interesting and relevant thread that I just had to contribute
something. It seems to me that the idea of cultural relativism begs the
question of some sort of universal morality, since the two ideas appear to
be opposites (unless I am gravely misinterpreting the idea). My question
is, can we (as human beings, or as anthropologists) develop a moral system
that transcends culture, or is it *always* culturally biased?

BTW, this is my first time posting on a mailing list, so if this is a
little simplistic, its just because I am nervous:)
