Cyberpaths to Ethical Competence.
Reverberating aspirations in the unfolding dimensions of cyberspace are our inevitable future. Being a professional practitioner requires a good deal of wisdom, a necessity in weighing and choosing among the inevitable choices one's practice presents. The steps along a path to wisdom, according to B. L. Visotaky, require exposure to varying opinions, debate, and discussion. In the midst of our frenetic workdays, we must all afford the luxury of thoughtful discourse on difficult issues. This chapter first considers a conceptual floor for ethics consultation on the Internet and discusses directions and detours as well as redressing ethical infractions. It then provides examples and innovations in ethics consultation, describes anticipated perils and advantages, and presents frameworks for decision making. Two appendixes are provided. The first contains vignettes of ethical dilemmas and the second contains other questions for decision making. (Contains 22 references.) (MKA)
