Tischler 2002 defines cultural relativism as "the recognition that social groups and culture must be studied and understood on their own terms before valid comparisons can be made ." This definition suggest a level of objectivity on the part of the researcher or individual observing that cultural group.However,subjectivity seems more realistic than objectivity because most people tend to use their own culture as the rubric for which they judge every other culture.Then is cultural relativism possible to a full extent ?
