Editorial Reviews


A good book for those healthcare workers working in a multi cultural society and probably a must for those in Forensics. -- Elsevier Book Review A well-set out book that takes us through some basic philosophical concepts which can help to inform the process of our decision-making in the workplace. This book is written for professionals in its scope... Richard Rowson is a philosopher who has helped developed ethic policies for different professions. This experience is particularly evident in his practice examples, which are relevant and thought provoking. Each chapter ends with some questions for the practitioner to reflect on, and the title mirrors the author's approach in the book. -- British Journal of Psychodrama and Sociodrama It's a great shame more academics do not, along with University of Glamorgan philosopher Richard Rowson, devote their minds more readily to elucidating real world problems. Here is an ethicist - who works with police and medical clinicians - seeking to argue through moral dilemmas that confront public bodies. In modern societies, values may conflict and professionals, their own ethical codes in course of renegotiation, sit in the middle of the battlefield. Rowson is a wise and straightforward counsellor. -- The Guardian Philosophy and the world of work rarely come together! In this book Richard Rowson, a philosopher from the University of Glamorgan, rather ambitiously attempts to bring the two together and to provide an ethical foundation for the work undertaken by a range of professionals and professional groups. -- Teaching Fellows Journal This book is recommended for those seeking to gain a better understanding of ethics as related to professional practice. The balance of moral philosophy, ethical principles, and practice context (brought to life by the case examples) has resulted in a book that does not overwhelm the reader with complexity - despite the fact that many issues raised and explored are highly controversial and worthy of righteous debate. The book provides many gems of wisdom about the ethical foundations of professional practice, and provides good introductory material for people wanting to engage with the challenges of cultural complexity in the contemporary environment. -- British Journal of Occupational Therapy This is a useful book and will provide a valuable introduction to ethical thinking for new professionals and a refresher for those who have been in the profession for some time. -- The Journal of Interprofessional Care

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received the book in a timely matter and the book appeared new. The content of the book was poorly organized, its really boring to read due to type of wording that it uses.
