Overview

Instilling Ethics casts a fresh light on both the historical sources and the contemporary issues of a major preoccupation of our time: ethics. Norma Thompson has compiled essays from prominent scholars in a wide-range of disciplines to address the problems, pretensions, and positive potentialities of ethical practices today. Instilling Ethics offers a new way of connecting today's ethics to the great ethical sources of the past— classical, medieval, and early modern—and presents a wise and witty critique of the current practice of 'professional ethics.'

Editorial Reviews

Canadian Journal of Political Science
This is a book that is well worth reading. Its essays are generally lively and thoughtful pieces that collectively engage with significant questions about the present state of ethics. The volume as a whole possesses coherence in raising and answering questions about the contemporary state of ethics.
