Overview

Ethics and the University brings together two closely related topics, the practice of ethics in the university ("academic ethics") and the teaching of practical or applied ethics in the university.
This volume is divided into four parts:

• A survey of practical ethics, offering an explanation of its recent emergence as a university subject, situating that subject into a wider social and historical context and identifying some problems that the subject generates for universities

• An examination of research ethics, including the problem of plagiarism

• A discussion of the teaching of practical ethics. Michael Davis explores how ethics can be integrated into the university curriculum and what part particular cases should play in the teaching of ethics

• An exploration of sexual ethics
Ethics and the University provides a stimulating and provocative analysis of academic ethics which will be useful to students, academics and practitioners.
