Discuss Rachels' "The Challenge of Cultural Relativism"

Rachels PDF

To eat of meat joyously, a juicy loin cut

And with the fresh-baked, fragrant rye bread

Chunks from the whole cheese, and to swallow

Cold beer from the jug: such things are held in

Low esteem, but to my mind, to be put into the grave

Without ever enjoying a mouthful of good meat

Is inhuman, and I say that, I who

Am not good at eating.

Bertolt Brecht from Bertolt Brecht Poems, edited by John Willett and Ralph Manheim (London: Eyre Methuen Ltd, 1976)
