Contextualism describes a collection of views in philosophy which emphasize the context in which an action, utterance, or expression occurs, and argues that, in some important respect, the action, utterance, or expression can only be understood relative to that context.

In ethics, "contextualist" views are most closely associated with situational ethics, or with moral relativism.
