The globalization of ethics : religious and secular perspectives by William M Sullivan( Book )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sullivan and Kymlicka seek to provide an alternative to post-9/11 pessimism about the ability of serious ethical dialogue to resolve disagreements and conflict across national, religious, and cultural differences. It begins by acknowledging the gravity of the problem: on our tightly interconnected planet, entire populations look for moral guidance to a variety of religious and cultural traditions, and these often stiffen, rather than soften, opposing moral perceptions. How, then, to set minimal standards for the treatment of persons while developing moral bases for coexistence and cooperation across different ethical traditions? The Globalization of Ethics argues for a tempered optimism in approaching these questions. Its distinguished contributors report on some of the most globally influential traditions of ethical thought in order to identify the resources within each tradition for working toward consensus and accommodation among the ethical traditions that shape the contemporary world
A new agenda for higher education : shaping a life of the mind for practice by William M Sullivan( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In A New Agenda for Higher Education, the authors endorse higher education's utility for enhancing the practical as well as intellectual dimensions of life by developing a third, different conception of educational purpose. Based on The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching seminar that brought together educators from six professional fields with faculty from the liberal arts and sciences, A New Agenda for Higher Education proposes an educational aim of "practical reason," focusing on the interdependence of liberal education and professional training." "The book includes case studies of instructors from a wide array of disciplines including those who educate their students for practical responsibility. The authors document the process by which they learned to collaborate with one another across fields and, in the end, produced a new discourse of practical reason."--Jacket
Interpretive social science : a second look by Paul Rabinow( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a new edition of the well-received Interpretive Social Science (California, 1979), in which Paul Rabinow and William M. Sullivan predicted the increasing use of an interpretive approach in the social sciences, one that would replace a model based on the natural sciences. In this volume, Rabinow and Sullivan provide a synthetic discussion of the new scholarship in this area and offer twelve essays, eight of them new, embodying the very best work on interpretive approaches to the study of human society. -- Publisher description
Educating lawyers : preparation for the profession of law by William M Sullivan( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The challenge of professional preparation for the law is to link the interests of educators with the needs of lawyers and the members of the public the profession is pledged to serve - in other words, participating in civic professionalism. Educating Lawyers examines how well law schools meet the challenge of linking these interests. The book is based on extensive field research at a wide variety of law schools in the United States and Canada that involved observations and interviews with faculty, students, and administrators. The book presents a richly detailed picture of how law school goes about its great work of transforming students into professionals and probes the gaps and the unintended consequences of key aspects of the law school experience. Educating Lawyers provides an opportunity to rethink "chinking like a lawyer" - the paramount educational construct currently employed, which affords students powerful intellectual tools while also shaping education and professional practice in subsequent years in significant, yet often unrecognized, ways." "Educating Lawyers offers an important and timely set of recommendations for improving the professional education of lawyers that will help to transform how lawyers are being prepared, practically and ethically, to play a vital and beneficial role, both professionally and in their communities."--BOOK JACKET

Rethinking undergraduate business education : liberal learning for the profession by Anne Colby( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book is from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching's three-year effort developed in response to concerns about the failures of business education to prepare undergraduates for their responsibilities in society, including in their business practice. Business leaders stress the importance of liberal learning but most liberal arts courses are not well-integrated with the business curriculum. This important resource reports on examples of how the two can be integrated and offers solid recommendations for improvement. The authors also address the value of some perspectives that business can offer to the liberal arts
