The Curricular Integration of Ethics: Theory and Practice.
Lisman, C. David
This book offers philosophical and pedagogical background to help faculty and academic administrators integrate ethics into curricula. The volume suggests the most appropriate way is through instructor-guided discussion of ethical issues relevant to course objectives. The book demonstrates how providing ethical discussions of relevant ethical issues is an integral part of teaching courses in ways that help students increase their critical ability to understand and apply course concepts to life. Many examples of ethics cases are provided. The book contains 13 chapters divided into three parts. Chapters include: (1) "Introducing Ethics into the Curriculum"; (2) "The Elements of Ethics"; (3) "The Role of Moral Theory in Ethical Decision Making"; (4) "Deontological and Virtue Theory"; (5) "Counter-Ethical Theories"; (6) "Feminist Ethics of Caring"; (7) "The Ethics of Teaching"; (8) "The Case Study Approach and Conducting Ethics Discussions"; (9) "Ethics in the Social Science Curriculum"; (10) "Research Ethics"; (11) "Ethics in the Science Curriculum"; (12) "Ethics in the Humanities Curriculum"; and (13) "Business and Professional Ethics." Contains references and an index. (EH)
