Title: MORAL DOMAIN AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCES IN CROSS-CULTURAL ETHICS
Keywords: cross-cultural ethics, moral foundations, cultural differences, values, ethical concepts
Abstract: The nature of moral disagreements in cultural contexts has never been more apparent, and cross-cultural ethics offers a conceptual framework for analyzing it. In intercultural studies there are well-known models of cultural differences (for example, Hofstede’s). In this two constructs of moral foundation are set in educational context. It is outlined by training international students in Bulgaian Universities. Majority of foreign students are from Turkey, Greece and some other Balkan countries. Differences of mindset are presented as a process of cultural conceptualization of moral intuitions and ethical concepts (honesty, right, loyalty, justice, responsibility). We can see that flexible perception and the ability to move among different points of view are substantial ethical and cultural competences. It helps to find common moral foundation behind cultural distinctions.
