The Sociology of the Professions and the Profession of Sociology: Professional Responsibility, Teaching, and Graduate Training.
Pescosolido, Bernice A.
Teaching Sociology, v19 n3 p351-61 Jul 1991
Examines issues surrounding socioethical topics. Argues that professional responsibility operates at three distinct but interconnected levels: individual (moral-philosophical), professional (sociological), and societal (multidisciplinary). Argues that the nature of sociology inevitably leads to facing ethical issues as professional rather than personal matters. Urges including ethics in existing courses rather than separate ones. (DK)
