for first paragraph “from http://ethicsunwrapped.utexas.edu/series/concepts-unwrapped
watch the following 5 videos (each is about 5 minutes long):
Conflict of interest
These videos, despite being just dreadful, do a decent job of explaining some of the ways in which unethical behavior is predictable in a professional context.
Really, most of these come down to a conflict between professional responsibility and other factors, such as commercialism (financial self interest).
Write a paragraph explaining how two or more of these issues arise as a conflict between personal and professional responsibilities.”
then for the rest of the paper:
“There are many codes of ethics available online–the society for professional engineers, the American Physical Therapy Association, the AMA, the CT Bar Association, etc.
Choose one, and read it analytically. Then read the first section of the attached paper by David Luban. Luban articulates three things that are the concern of most professional codes.
Write a page explaining how the code you chose handles these three things, and how it addresses at least one of the concerns from the video series. ”
(One way that professional organizations try to avoid the sorts of predictable ethical lapses we looked at earlier is through codes of ethics. Since many professions–journalism, law, medicine, operate without much legal oversight, they have professional organizations entrusted to guarantee high standards.)
