The Misuse of Non-Argumentative Approaches in Practical Ethics Discussions: A Dialogue with Discussion
Gough, Jim
College Quarterly, v8 n4 Fall 2005
This paper presents a description of a set of classroom discussions with students in an introductory college ethics course, with typical responses from the instructor to the students, as well as post discussion observations by the writer/instructor. It is intended as an open-ended paper, one which introduces the reader to discussions and invites further discussions to continue the dialogue. Some of the ideas in this paper were originally presented at the Canadian Society for the Study of Practical Ethics meetings, May 30, 2004, St. Johns College, University of Winnipeg, Winnipeg, Manitoba. The author sensed a need for open discussion of important issues raised in some college courses, issues that affect, not only these courses but other courses, issues that are raised to allow one to test one's own teaching intuition about what works and what does not work in similar circumstances.
