Abstract  Moral decision-making means that when an individual faces a conflict between two or more moral values or moral needs, he weighs the behaviors and the following outcomes and makes a final choice. The moral dilemma is a classical paradigm for studying moral decision. The traditional moral dilemma paradigm has been questioned a lot. There is also controversy in analyzing moral decision-making with the traditional dilemma paradigm. The CNI model of moral decision-making partially solves the shortcomings of the traditional moral dilemma paradigm. This article analyzes and compares the theories and corresponding studies of the two paradigms and proposes the limitations and value of the two paradigms. Future research should continue to improve the CNI model and pay attention to the underlying psychological mechanisms of moral decision-making.
Keywords moral decision      moral dilemma      CNI model      dual processing theory
