The Elements of Ethics is a brief guide to the essential elements of professional ethics. Designed for students and professionals in all vocational fields, this book is the definitive, nuts-and-bolts, must-have reference for anyone striving to walk the ethical high road. The Elements of Ethics distills the wealth of published material on moral virtue and ethics into the 75 most important applied ethical strategies. Comprehensive in its coverage, the elements are written in pithy prose and are relevant to ethical behavior in any profession. 75 elements of ethics have been organized into eleven categories which include matters of integrity, nonmaleficence, respect, beneficence, prudence, compassion, justice, self-reliance, fidelity, excellence, and sound judgment. Each element begins with a brief vignette that illustrates excellent ethical practice in action, continues with commentary explaining the element, and concludes with a bulleted list of the key components that could be put into immediate practice. The book is ideal as a primary text or adjunct casebook for courses on ethics and professionalism in both graduate (professional) and undergraduate programs. The engaging vignettes and readable prose make this an excellent book for launching discussions with students or professionals taking an ethics workshop for continuing education. Additionally, readers are provided 'thinking tools' that enable them to engage in sticky ethical decision making.
