Character and Virtue Within the Professions
The principal objective of the series is to highlight the interplay between practitioners’ personal character and the ethical dimensions of their professional domain. Each book will explore the specific ethical dimensions of the given profession at hand, including the interplay between professionals’ individual character virtues and their working environments. In a time when cultures of managerialism, auditing, performance metrics and commercial success are seemingly increasing, this series attempts to re-focus the professions towards the ethical and societal origins that each profession intends to serve. Underpinned by perspectives of philosophy, psychology and sociology, each book will offer practitioners fresh viewpoints about how their character and professional context can influence their professional practice.
