This claim echos objections to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights raised by the American Anthropological Association. 1. Respect for individual differences entails a respect for cultural differences which are a component of identity. 2. No technique of qualitatively evaluating cultures has been discovered. 3. Values are relative to the culture from which they derive, the UDHR takes a western perspective thereby detracting from the applicability of the UDHR to mankind as a whole.
