Ethical Fundamentalism Definition. Ethical fundamentalism is when an individual looks for outside sources to make the decision of what is ethical and unethical (Cheeseman pg. 713). The person is looking to be told what is right and wrong and what he or she should do. This does not have to come from a person, it could also come from a book such as a religious text. Outcome. If the employee were to use ethical fundamentalism he or she would tell a managing partner immediately that working on the file was not an option. This employee would explain to the manager that there is a conflict of interest due to the employee's financial interest in the company. The manager would immediately remove the employee from the file and assign it to a coworker. The manager should also instruct this employee not to even open the file so there is no concern of conflict throughout the audit process. Choice . Writer chooses ethical fundamentalism as the best school of thought option for this situation. The employee's best option is to seek guidance from an outside source, such as a manager, that is not involved in said company and would look out for the employee's best interest. Ethical Relativism Definition. Ethical Relativism is close to the opposite of ethical fundamentalism in that the individual is to make their own decision in determining what is right or wrong or ethical and unethical. This decision is based on his or her feelings and does not discriminate against what is normal and what is not.
