This article examines definitions of values in mathematics education. It argues that definitions are needed to carry on productive discourse. However, the search for a single definition is futile simply because widely differing phenomena are viewed as values. The definition of the term value is a reflection of what people think; believe, feel, and do. Although many different definitions of values are suggested, the conceptual ambiguities of values still exist. The multiple views on the concept of values are
understandable, considering the philosophical positions underpinning each view. Whatever definition we might adopt, it is meaningful to offer reasonable arguments in support of it over the others. In this article the
universal integrated perspective, which is a God-centered philosophical and psychological view, is proposed as a framework for defining the concept of values.
