Against the Grain: New Approaches to Professional Ethics
Trinity Press International, 1993 - Philosophy - 196 pages
This book challenges current thinking on professional ethics and suggests new ways of looking at ethical issues.
The contributors to the volume (Michael Goldberg, Richard P. Vance, Deborah Fernhoff, Nancey Murphy, Theophus H. Smith, Jack L. Sammons Jr., William H. Willimon, and Senator John C. Danforth) are outstanding representatives of their respective professions. In this book, using the categories of religion and narrative as methodological tools, they move readers to a more responsive, hopeful, and truthful conduct of the professions.
A practical Ethics Audit Worksheet concludes the book.
