Situationists – individuals who are closely aligned to this orientation believe that everything is relative and tend to reject any type of universal moral rule or code. Actions are often based upon an individual assessment of the situation.
Subjectivist – as with the situationists, the subjectivist supports the relative nature of events and as such, also rejects the concept of universal moral rules or codes. Unlike the situationist, however, subjectivists relate each event to a personal assessment that is based solely upon his or her own moral principles.
Absolutists – a strong supporter of idealism, the absolutist is grounded in the idea that the best possible outcome to any situation can be obtained by following absolute universal moral principles.
Exceptionists – like the absolutist, the exceptionist is also grounded in the idea that the best possible outcome to a situation can be obtained by following absolute universal moral principles. The distinction, however, is that the exceptionist also acknowledges that certain situations may require a deviation or exception to those ideals.
