Overview

Now more than ever, with the explosion of new technologies and human service delivery systems, innovative teaching methodologies and assessment instruments, classic ethical questions and problems still remain. Some examples of these are: unprecedented internet and e-mail dilemmas involving student plagiarism or violations of privacy; sexual harassment in the workplace or in the classroom; lying to students, clients, and patients in order to bring about beneficial outcomes; and subtle forms of racial, gender, and sexual orientation discrimination that continue to persist in schools, colleges, and other human service venues. The Second Edition of Robert Nash's bestseller expands on his earlier work with the addition of an extensive "question-and-answer" epilogue that masterfully adds layers of explanation and understanding to ethical issues raised in the original text. Nash practices his own principles of having meaningful moral conversations with students and critics by responding to their questions about the first edition. This new chapter incorporates the latest research in applied ethics teaching and in resolving ethical dilemmas in the professions. The only applied ethics book written for both educators and human service professionals, "Real World" Ethics is essential reading for everyone who finds themselves faced with making critical ethical decisions in their work.
