Ok, not Egoist, but still relativist as the actions are situationally dependent; ie sacrificing yourself to save another would depend on if they are an offspring of yours or not, or if many people would die.

Relativism being based on society is being focused on by other peoples posts but they are forgetting (or not realising) that society is only one factor in determining the situation. Relativism simply means that every situation is considered separately for the moral course of action with no "unbreakable rules" (although that doesn't mean there will be a situation where you perform a particular action).
