abstract
Although moral relativism has a long history in the philosophical tradition, the study of psychological, individual differences in the construct has occurred only recently. In both philosophy and psychology the construct has been defined in a variety of ways that often differ from one other. While measures have been created to assess the construct, these measures are often highly complex or appear to be measuring constructs outside of moral relativism. Thus, the purpose of this thesis is to create an easy to implement, standalone measure of individual differences in the belief in moral relativism. My aim is to adhere closely to the philosophical definitions and to attempt to create a measure that can accurately assess the construct of moral relativism.
