This is an anthology of readings intended for use as a primary text in first-degree courses in professional ethics. Increasingly, universities are offering such general courses as an alternative to the proliferation of specialized courses in the ethics of particular professions, for example engineering, business, and law. As yet, however, no satisfactory text has appeared. This book is organized around issues; it raises a particular ethical question and examines it in the context of different professions. It includes essays both by philosophers and people working in the professions. The editor has supplied a wide variety of pedagogic aids, including introductions to and study of discussion questions for each set of readings, cases for discussion, and an appendix on preparing cases for class discussion and preparing position papers.

JOAN CALLAHAN, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Kentucky, is editor of Ethical Issues in Professional Life and Reproduction, Ethics, and the Law: Feminist Perspectives (forthcoming from Indiana University Press), and is co-author with James W. Knight of Preventing Birth: Contemporary Methods and Related Moral Controversions.
