From professional ethics to ethics in professional life : implications for learning, teaching and study.

Banks, S. (2009) 'From professional ethics to ethics in professional life : implications for learning, teaching and study.', Ethics and social welfare., 3 (1). pp. 55-63.

Abstract

This short piece offers some reflections on features of the traditional professional ethics literature, focusing on codes, conduct and rational decision-making in difficult cases. It is argued that this kind of approach offers a rather artificial, abstract and narrow conception of ethics. Consideration is then given to what might be the implications for learning and teaching of shifting emphasis towards a more embedded conception of ethics in professional life, with a focus on the commitment and character of professional practitioners and the specificities of the contexts in which they work.
