An Integrative Model of Moral Deliberation maintains that current models of moral deliberation do not effectively deal with contemporary moral complexity because they are based on an inadequate theory of moral cognition. Drawing on research in neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, social theory, and dual process cognitive theory and on the work of William James, this book develops a theory of moral cognition which provides a major role for aesthetic sensibilities and upon this theory develops a robust model of moral deliberation. This model portrays moral deliberation as a back and forth movement between intuitive and analytic cognitions, which constructs narrative scenarios and then assesses and revises them according to aesthetic sensibilities.

An invaluable resource for any athletic training curriculum, this text introduces athletic training as a profession by presenting an ethical framework of values, principles, and theory. Chapters explore important issues related to cultural competence, foundational behaviors of professional practice, professional and moral behavior, and ethical decision-making - skills that both inform and transcend the athletic training profession. Learning activities at the end of each section help you see connections between the material and clinical practice, revealing new insights about yourself, your profession, and the organizations with which you will interact. Content draws connections between ethical values, principles, and theory, as relating to the Foundational Behaviors of Professional Practice. Over 100 case studies promote critical thinking with clinical examples of ethical situations and conflicts that correspond to the domains identified by the Board of Certification (BOC) Role Delineation Study. Learning Activities chapters at the end of each section provide over 60 activities designed to link content and theory to clinical practice. Organized into three levels, Level One consists of an introduction to professional ethics in athletic training, Level Two focuses on professional enculturation, and Level Three explores the application of ethical concepts in professional life. Good to Know boxes highlight information throughout the chapters to enrich content and identify applications in the field. Professional Pearl boxes contain quotes from NATA Hall of Fame Inductees, offering advice about the challenges often faced in the profession. Chapter outlines, learning objectives, and ethical concepts at the beginning of each chapter lay out the information in an easy-to-follow framework. Appendices include self-assessment and evaluation tools that encourage you to assess where your own responses fall within ethical boundaries. Sections on cultural competence and ethical dilemmas increase awareness of diversity by exploring scenarios in which the practitioner's and patient's morals may conflict.

Overlapping Consensus

"Pluralism, the variety of philosophical, moral, cultural and religious worldviews of contemporary society, is a characteristic of Western democracies. This places upon such societies a great challenge for the teaching of moral principles in schools and for the establishment of such principles in the public sphere. John Rawls's political idea of an overlapping consensus is a principle of decision-making that can be used as a model for arriving at principles for moral education and also as a model for moral deliberation in the public domain. Multicultural narratives can play an important role in enhancing the creation of an overlapping consensus on public moral issues in pluralistic societies. They can be examples of the kinds of challenges involved in the moral decision process and also serve to illustrate the importance of moral perception as a complement to moral reflection in the task of moral deliberation. Teaching the multicultural nature of modern civilization and also the universal incidence of the democratic council tradition can strengthen citizens' sense of mutual respect in the course of public speech. This can help to develop a culture that is more open to the formation of an overlapping consensus on matters that concern public morality." --

Democracy And The Political Unconscious

Political philosopher Noelle McAfee proposes a powerful new political theory for our post-9/11 world, in which an old pathology-the repetition compulsion-has manifested itself in a seemingly endless war on terror. McAfee argues that the quintessentially human desire to participate in a world with others is the key to understanding the public sphere and to creating a more democratic society, a world that all members can have a hand in shaping. But when some are effectively denied this participation, whether through trauma or terror, instead of democratic politics, there arises a political unconscious, an effect of desires unarticulated, failures to sublimate, voices kept silent, and repression reenacted. Not only is this condition undemocratic and unjust, it may lead to further trauma. Unless its troubles are worked through, a political community risks continual repetition and even self-destruction. McAfee deftly weaves together her experience as an observer of democratic life with an array of intellectual schemas, from poststructural psychoanalysis to Rawlsian and Habermasian democratic theories, as well as semiotics, civic republicanism, and American pragmatism. She begins with an analysis of the traumatic effects of silencing members of a political community. Then she explores the potential of deliberative dialogue and other "talking cures" and public testimonies, such as the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission, to help societies work through, rather than continually act out, their conflicts. Democracy and the Political Unconscious is rich in theoretical insights, but it is also grounded in the practical problems of those who are trying to process the traumas of oppression, terror, and brutality and create more decent and democratic societies. Drawing on a breathtaking range of theoretical frameworks and empirical observations, Democracy and the Political Unconscious charts a course for democratic transformation in a world sorely lacking in democratic practice.

In this wholly original study, Josep Corbi asks how one should relate to a certain kind of human suffering, namely, the harm that people cause one another. Relying upon real life examples of human suffering--including torture, genocide, and warfare--as opposed to thought experiments, Corbi proposes a novel approach to self-knowledge that runs counter to standard Kantian approaches to morality.

`It is a book worth reading because of the centrality of ethics in all research. It is useful for those of us who serve on ethics committees, as it makes us think beyond and question the formal guidelines' - Qualitative Research Journal 'The problems described in this book would certainly be extremely interesting to researchers who are about to investigate highly sensitive areas such as abused women, children etc - From this perspective it is a valuable tool for feminist researchers … their detailed discussion of potentially problematic situations contributes to the debate about ethical issues in feminist research' - Nursing Ethics This book examines the theoretical and practical aspects of ethical dilemmas in qualitative research. To many researchers, `ethics' has been associated with following ethical guidelines and gaining ethics approval from academic bodies. However, the complexities of researching private lives and placing accounts in the public arena increasingly raise ethical issues which are not easily solved by rules and guidelines. This book addresses the gap between research practice and ethical principles that inform it, focusing on responsibility and accountability in applied feminist research practice. The book explores ethical issues in research from a range of angles, including: - Access and informed consent - Negotiating participation - Rapport - The intentions of feminist research - Epistemology and data analysis - Tensions between being a professional researcher and a `caring' professional The book includes practical guidelines to aid ethical decision-making rooted in feminist ethics of care. Ethics in Qualitative Research is designed for academics, professionals and students carrying out research, and is a timely teaching text for ethics in research across the social sciences.

Just Caring

What does it mean to be a "just" and "caring" society when we have only limited resources to meet unlimited health care needs? Do we believe that all lives are of equal value? Is human life priceless? Should a "just" and "caring" society refuse to put limits on health care spending? In Just Caring, Leonard Fleck reflects on the central moral and political challenges of health reform today. He cites the millions of Americans who go without health insurance, thousands of whom die prematurely, unable to afford the health care needed to save their lives. Fleck considers these deaths as contrary to our deepest social values, and makes a case for the necessity of health care rationing decisions. The core argument of this book is that no one has a moral right to impose rationing decisions on others if they are unwilling to impose those same rationing decisions on themselves in the same medical circumstances. Fleck argues we can make health care rationing fair, in ways that are mutually respectful, if we engage in honest rational democratic deliberation. Such civic engagement is rare in our society, but the alternative is endless destructive social controversy that is neither just nor caring.
