"The aspects of the book related to the philosophy of science and cognitive science (inductive and deductive reasoning, biases, and heuristics) are distilled in reasonable and useful ways. I recommend this book to those addiction professionals who want to create their own framework for ethical decision making." --PsycCRITIQUES Ethical decision-making is required in many of the difficult situations faced by addiction professionals. In this guide, Michael Taleff describes how to integrate critical thinking with ethical decision-making. This is a guide not on "what to do" when confronted with difficult ethical dilemmas, but on how to think about what to do. The author presents common ethical dilemmas that addiction professionals face in their daily work--such as boundary issues, confidentiality, dual relationships, and more--and asks readers to consider their own responses to these dilemmas. The book then shows readers how to apply new models of ethical thinking to practice. Key features: Presents an ethical self-exam to encourage critical thinking about one's own decision-making method Introduces a variety of models such as the social contract theory, existentialist theory, and ethical egoism Discusses how biases, emotional reactions, and fallacies can weaken ethical decision-making Presents an introductory "Ethics Judgment Kit," a simple, practical decision-making procedure for students This book demonstrates how critical thinking skills can impact and improve the process of ethical decision-making.

A number of developments in the museum movement during the last few years have forced museums to give greater attention to ethical issues. Members of a profession are increasingly regarded constituting an ethical community. Every person with such a community must have a sense of personal obligation as well as a responsibilty for others to assure ethical achievement. This volume firmly places notions of ethics in the field of action. Museum Ethics considers the theoretical and practical elements of the philosophy of conduct in relation to critical contemporaty issues and museums. This discussion encompasses the procurement of artifacts, the rights of indigenous peoples, repatriation, the politics of display, the conservation of objects and the role of education, as well as the day-to-day management of a museum. All persons active in museum matters, whether custodian, curator, or trustee have an ethical obligation to the museum profession and the public. This volume will allow the professional and student to work towards a more responsible and responsive museum community.
