Encouraging Self-Reflection by Business Honors Students: Reflective Writing, Films, and Self-Assessments
Yoder, Stephen A.
Honors in Practice, v13 p29-54 2017
"The Moral Imagination," edited by Oliver F. Williams is a collection of essays written nearly twenty years ago on how honors educators might teach students to develop a sense of moral imagination through literature, art, and film. The book's subtitle--"How Literature and Films Can Stimulate Ethical Reflection in the Business World"--elucidates the focus of the book, and a good definition for Williams's use of the term "moral imagination" is the "uniquely human ability to conceive of fellow humanity as moral beings and as persons, not as objects whose value rests in utility or usefulness". This article presents a discussion of several themes contained in "The Moral Imagination" which Yoder believes have become the building blocks of his approach to teaching business honors students courses focused on ethics, but also in courses in leadership and strategy.
