For much of our history, decisions were judged as ethical based upon their conformity to religious values and principles. With the rise of secular humanism that started in the 19th century, academics began casting off religious based frameworks in favor of other rational, intellectual based systems (Geisler & Feinberg, 1980). Your textbook presents you with a number of these systems and provides a sense of the strengths and weaknesses of each. Since each system is acknowledged as having its own set of strengths and weaknesses, modern academic ethical decision making involves considering any situation from multiple perspectives, considering what each theory would suggest as the ethical action, and then making the decision that seems to be consistent with the majority of ethical frameworks (Rae & Wong, 2004). As a Christ-centered institution, Indiana Wesleyan University believes that the biblical ethical system is applicable, workable, and preferred to any of these other systems.
