Title: The True, the Good and the Practical
Author(s): HALDANE, John
Journal: Ethical Perspectives
Volume: 4 Issue: 4 Date: December 1997
In his paper A Philosophical Approach to Professional Ethics, Professor de Stexhe offers a very rich and interesting set of reflections on the possible foundations of professional ethics. First he constructs a compelling problematic arising from the diverse but intersecting dimensions in which ethical action is located. Then he describes a task, or more accurately a series of tasks, involving a skilfully choreographed set of dialectal movements between the various moments or conditioning features of action.
