Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David E. Cooper examines how the logic behind moral theory can help us address questions swirling around ethical conflicts within a modern pluralistic, multicultural society. Ethics for Professionals in a Multicultural World provides a solid foundation in moral theory, recast in light of postmodern critiques of moral philosophy, together with diverse applications that shed light on how to avoid numerous, real-life ethical failures. Cooper draws substantially on the philosophy of Jurgen Habermas to help students understand the philosophical complexity of ethical challenges that arise for professionals in all types of work. Cooper's text is rich in theory, application, and pedagogic elements that can help students from all disciplines better understand how to resolve ethical challenges in the modem workplace. Features of Ethics for Professionals
  • Lively exposition of standard ethical theories, including Habermas's discourse ethics
  • Engaging illustrations to enhance students' understanding and appreciation of complex philosophical issues
  • Rich infusion of anecdotes and stories which capture the ethical dimension of real-world experiences
  • Examples drawn from diverse academic disciplines (e.g., psychology, political science, history) to explain philosophic content and illustrate ethical failures
  • Technical terms highlighted with definitions, together with a glossary for easy reference

Synopsis:

Written in an easily accessible, non-threatening presentation, Ethics for the Multicultural World offers clear explanation of how philosophical ethics has historically evolved as a response to muddle and banal moral decisions based on confusion caused by the plurality of ethical and moral beliefs. The book explains why codes of ethics are important, and why the codes themselves have to be grounded in a broader philosophical context to be useful in multicultural societies. This accessible introduction provides an overview of applied ethics and social pluralism, moral agents, and situational control and professionalism, as well as an introduction to muddle, drift, banality, and subjectivisms verses morality, empirical and analytic studies, moral foundations and concepts, six normative theories and application strategy. For individuals interested in professional ethics.
