Editorial Reviews

Gary James Jason
"Learning through Disagreement is an excellent auxiliary text for any business ethics course. The book's dialogical (as opposed to debating) orientation is a refreshingly constructive approach to dealing with contentious issues in the subject. The result is a most useful tool for facilitating fruitful student discussions."
Laquita Blockson
"As a management professor, I enjoy employing a variety of classroom activities and experiential exercises that help my students enhance their critical thinking skills. Challenging their underlying assumptions and biases―and working through them―is necessary for effective ethical decision making. Learning through Disagreement is a great addition to a student’s management and leadership toolkit."
