The author gives us a vision of educational reform that transcends standards, curriculum, and instructional strategies. He argues for a paradigm shift-a schoolwide embrace of an "ethic of excellence" and with a passion for quality describes what's possible when teachers, students, and parents commit to nothing less than the best. The author tells exactly how this can be done, from the blackboard to the blacktop to the school boardroom.

Als Ehemann und Vater von vier Söhnen weiß Unternehmensberater Patrick Lencioni aus eigener leidvoller Erfahrung, wie ein stressiges Familienleben aussieht - doch viel wichtiger noch: Er weiß, wie man effektiv damit umgeht. In Lencionis neuer Leadership-Fabel gibt es ein Wiedersehen mit Jude Cousins, dem jungen, aufstrebenden Consultant aus dem Buch Silos, Politik und Grabenkämpfe. An seinem Beispiel erfahren wir, wie schon einige einfache und praktische Werkzeuge ohne großen zeitlichen Aufwand helfen, weniger Stress und dafür mehr Übersichtlichkeit und Freude in das Familienleben zu bringen. Ein ernsthaftes Strategie-Meeting zwischen Windeln und Abwasch? Es mag etwas seltsam erscheinen, Management-Tools und Geschäftslösungen auf das Privatleben zu übertragen. Doch es lohnt sich! Schließlich ist die Familie auch nichts anderes als eine Organisation, und zwar die wichtigste in unserem Leben!

Immer häufiger stellt sich die Frage nach der Zukunft und der Bedeutung von Public Relations, dabei werden die Antworten im Rückgriff auf wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse und auf die praktizierten Normen sittlichen Verhaltens gesucht. Es verwundert folglich nicht, daß für PR Primate des "Sollens" gefordert werden, um Defizite in der Praxis zu überwinden. PR-Ethik soll PR zu mehr Professionalismus verhelfen, ihr eine neue Perspektive öffnen und mehr Glaubwürdigkeit nach innen wie nach außen gewährleisten.Die Herbert-Quandt-Stiftung hat diese Entwicklung zum Anlaß genommen, Wissenschaftler aus PR-bezogenen Disziplinen zur Diskussion von Ethik-Fragen einzuladen. Schwerpunktthemen waren philosophische und ethische Aspekte von PR, Organisation und Management, kommunikationswissenschaftliche Ansätze und denkbare Folgen des Nachdenkens über PR-Ethik für Praxis und PR-Forschung.

Behavior. Personality. Adolescence. Academic performance. These are some of the buzz phrases prevalent in middle school settings as educators wrestle with how to understand, manage, lead, and work with our middle school students and help shape them into responsible young adults. Character education (and many terms like it) is a concept that has been around for many years on every level of the educational process. In the middle school setting, there is an urgent need for character education, regardless of what form it takes. Sadly, some schools and/or the administration abandon this process in the vigorous pursuit of higher test scores. This book condenses my empirical research into character education with a focus on the inner city middle school setting. I examined how school stakeholders viewed this topic, what they know about it, why they support or disapprove of character education, and possible steps schools could take to implement their own initiatives successfully, both in the middle school setting and others as well.

The Ethics of Care

Virginia Held assesses the ethics of care as a promising alternative to the familiar moral theories that serve so inadequately to guide our lives. The ethics of care is only a few decades old, yet it is by now a distinct moral theory or normative approach to the problems we face. It is relevant to global and political matters as well as to the personal relations that can most clearly exemplify care. This book clarifies just what the ethics of care is: what its characteristics are, what it holds, and what it enables us to do. It discusses the feminist roots of this moral approach and why the ethics of care can be a morality with universal appeal. Held examines what we mean by "care," and what a caring person is like. Where other moral theories demand impartiality above all, the ethics of care understands the moral import of our ties to our families and groups. It evaluates such ties, focusing on caring relations rather than simply on the virtues of individuals. The book proposes how such values as justice, equality, and individual rights can "fit together" with such values as care, trust, mutual consideration, and solidarity. In the second part of the book, Held examines the potential of the ethics of care for dealing with social issues. She shows how the ethics of care is more promising than Kantian moral theory and utilitarianism for advice on how expansive, or not, markets should be, and on when other values than market ones should prevail. She connects the ethics of care with the rising interest in civil society, and considers the limits appropriate for the language of rights. Finally, she shows the promise of the ethics of care for dealing with global problems and seeing anew the outlines of international civility.

A case of scientific misconduct that was widely discussed in public both in Germany and abroad has led the Executive Board of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft to appoint an international commission to explore causes of dishonesty in science systems to discuss preventive measures to examine the existing mechanisms of professional self regulation in science and to make recommendations on how to safeguard them. As a result of its deliberations, the commission puts forward the recommendations covered in this book. The accompanying justification and commentary contain suggestions for their implementation. They are followed by a short overview of the problems in the scientific system discussed by the commission, and of institutional regulations in other countries which were helpful for drawing up these recommendations.

The new focus has been prompted by conceptual development based on recent research together with teaching experiences with the original book, including institutional teaching, course evaluations and book reviews. Ethics and the Community of Inquiry gets to the heart of democratic education and how best to achieve it. The book radically reshapes our understanding of education by offering a framework from which to integrate curriculum, teaching and learning and to place deliberative democracy at the centre of education reform. It makes a significant contribution to current debates on educational theory and practice, in particular to pedagogical and professional practice, and ethics education.

Increasingly, medical students are required to face up to ethical issues in their training and practice. At the same time, there is growing interest in philosophy courses in the ethical issues raised by medical practice. This textbook, designed primarily for students of medicine, develops the issues to a philosophical level complex enough to be satisfying to students of philosophy as well as MA students on applied ethics courses. The author advocates an approach to medical ethics which breaks out of the straitjacket of the narrow choice between utilitarian or deontological theory, and contains a valuable discussion of practical wisdom. It maintains a balance between case studies and philosophical arguments - which are developed in a historical context, and will be of interest at all levels of the medical profession.

In seiner 1861 zunächst in Frazer's Magazine publizierten und zu seinen Lebzeiten in weiteren vier Auflagen vorgelegten Schrift "Utlitarism" verteidigt John Stuart Mill das Nützlichkeitsprinzip als das grundlegende Kriterium für die Beurteilung der Moralität aller Handlungen, sei es der freien Handlungen der Individuen, sei es der Einschränkungen dieser Freiheit durch von Gesellschaft und Staat vorgegebene Regeln.Dabei geht es ihm vor allem darum, den Utilitarismus vor dem Einwand zu retten, er gebe dem hedonistischen Eigennutz Vorrang vor der ethischen Maxime einer gerechten Verteilung der Güter. So glaubt er, aus dem Prinzip des "größten Glücks der größten Zahl" ein Modell der Verteilungsgerechtigkeit ableiten zu können, das das Nützlichkeitsprinzip als das erste Prinzip der Moral erweist.Die hier in neuer deutscher Übersetzung vorgelegte Schrift gilt als das Hauptwerk der klassischen utilitaristischen Ethik.
