Ethics of Interpersonal Communication Revisited.
Arnett, Ronald C.
Noting that speech communication educators devote little classroom time to the subject of ethics, this paper proposes a framework for the discussion of interpersonal ethics in the classroom setting. The paper first summarizes C. T. Brown and P. W. Keller's work in interpersonal ethics, which places the study of ethics within the democratic tradition, and then defines a contextual ethic as a complement to that view. It next reviews selected material on contextual ethics, and examines the major elements of a contextual interpersonal definition and presents its implications for interpersonal communication theory.
