8 - From Ethics to Liberal Arts in Today’s University

from Part III - The Future of Liberal Management Education


In this chapter we return to the present to argue for the urgency of a new approach to ethics education and to the place of ethical reasoning in the university as a whole. We note the rise of the literature of the corporate university and criticisms of the moral compass of the university that make teaching ethics to students more difficult. We suggest the deep heritage of the humanities can be brought to bear on this problem.
