    Situation ethics is harder then it looks.
    In a nutshell-
    There are four presumptions:
    Pragmatism - The action should work
    Relativism - Reject absolutes
    Positivism - Love is the most important
    Personalism - People should be put first

    Then there are six key principles-
    1) Agape love is the only absolute good
    2)Agape love taught by jesus
    3)Follow from love
    4) Love has no faviortes
    5)Love is the final end not the means to an end
    6) The most loving thing todo depends on the situation

    But all you need todo is take 2 presumptions and 2 principles then talk and compare relativism to absoltism and I am sure with that you can get A and stick fletecher in there too...sorted.

    I hate, hate, hate the way they mark the phil/ethic exams. Maybe it's the scientist in me, but just getting a general impression on the state of the essay doesn't cut it for me.
