  • Working Principles
    • Relativism
      • Agape love should be should applied in a way that it is relative to every situation
      • This is due to Fletcher believing every decision depends on the situation or context as there are no absolutes principles
    • Pragmatism
      • The solution to all moral decisions is that they all need to be practical
      • According to Fletcher it is the "good that works"
    • Positivism
      • The course of action has to start with a positive choice as you need to want to do good
      • Situation ethics depends on Christians freely choosing the faith that God is love, so giving first place to Christian love
    • Personalism
      • Ethics is concerned with people rather than things
      • The command is to love people not laws or principles
