Ethics Across the Curriculum: A Practice-Based Approach

Lexington Books, 2003 - 174 páginas
Based on the results of their successful eight-year faculty seminar, Michael Boylan and James Donahue provide a practical framework and concrete suggestions for engaging questions of ethics in the university curriculum. This framework will enable college and university professors to address a full range of ethical issues as they arise in classroom discussion, both in the academic disciplines and in professional education. This book contains the insights of both a philosopher and a theologian as it draws on classic theories of ethics in multiple disciplines. It is designed for use by humanists and theists alike. The book provides means for educators and students to work through the following kinds of questions: What ought I to do when faced with ethical choices? What kinds of persons do we aspire to be? What are the ethical messages conveyed in our intellectual disciplines? How do the professions and professional choices reflect ideas of a good society? Ethics across the Curriculum: A Practice-Based Approach will be an essential guide for developing curriculum and pedagogical goals to meet the challenges of ethics education. It will be a great help for professors, school administrators, and all interested in ethics in the university context.
