# How to understand objective/subjective and relative/absolute in the context of morality?

I was reading this SEP article and in this article a model with orthogonal axes for objective/subjective and relative/absolute is given.

An example analogy of a relative yet objective notion is also made: Tallness is a relative notion—John is a tall man but a short pro basketball player—but it is not the case that “thinking makes it so.”

This made the concepts more clear to me and now I'm trying to make analogies for the other categories too.

Height seems to be an appropriate analogous example for the objective and absolute category. I am not sure how to think of a subjective yet absolute truth though, perhaps a movie rating since it is mind-dependent yet measurable?

Below is my attempted solution

where the subjective/objective axis says whether something is mind-dependent and the relative/absolute axis says whether it is measurable.

What are analogous examples for each category of objective/subjective and relative/absolute moral truths?

• Hello, and welcome to Philosophy.SE. I think this is a case of the XY problem. Your question title asks something about morality, then there are aspects of how to appropriately model the relation between objective-subjective and relative-absolute (the scheme you use is but one possibility), and in the end you ask whether your examples - which are completely unrelated to morality - are correct. Please try to point out the exact question you tried to answer with this scheme and how exactly it arised. Jun 30, 2018 at 13:45
• If the questions stays as it is, it would have to be closed. One reason for closing questions is "Questions that push a personal philosophy with no question beyond "am I right" or "what do you think" are off-topic here as this is not a blog. It's ok to express unique opinions, but you must have an actual, answerable question to go with them." See also the help center. Jun 30, 2018 at 13:49
• Thanks for your comments, I edited the question to hopefully make it more clear and unambiguous. Jun 30, 2018 at 15:37
