To understand a culture, you must first understand its principles and ethics. These standards, also known as a moral code, are the foundation for acceptable behaviors and thinking. Matsumoto and Juang (2008) note that this moral code is created within the “specific culture and society, handed down from one generation to the next” (pp. 102). Each culture has its own set of beliefs about what is appropriate and fair concerning civil rights, duties, and freedoms. Consequently, a culture’s moral code also molds the laws of each culture.
For this Discussion, search for two articles related to moral reasoning in two different cultures. Consider how and why moral reasoning may vary in different cultures.
With these thoughts in mind:
Write your definition of moral reasoning. Then, compare two similarities and two differences in moral reasoning across the two cultures you selected. Finally, describe two culture-specific factors that might lead to these differences and explain how. Support your responses using current literature.
