In Elements of Moral Philosophy (Ch.2) and The Right Thing to Do (RTD) (Ch. 1) a moral theory called "Moral Relativism" or "Cultural Relativism" is discussed (these two terms refer to the same theory). In RTD Ch. 2, "Moral Skepticism" is discussed.

What are these theories? Explain them.

What are arguments against them, i.e., arguments that they are false? Present these arguments in logically valid form (hint, Modus Tollens is an ideal form: "If this theory were true, then such and such would follow. But such and such is not true, so the theory is not true."
