Doing Good and Avoiding Evil
by Lisa Newton


For some interesting samples of this literature, I recommend some of the earlier writings of Mila Aroskar on Nursing, Randall Collins on Engineering (The Credential Society: An Historical Sociology of Education and Stratification, New York: Academic Press, 1979) and Magali Sarfatti Larson on professionalism in general (The Rise of Professionalism: A Sociological Analysis, Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1977.)

The volume is Robert Solomon and Kristine Hanson's It's Good Business New York: Harper and Row, 1985 (Perennial edition 1986), for those who would like to follow up on that approach. As an alternative, you might wish to read Mark Pastin's Hard Problems of Management, subtitled Gaining the Ethics Edge, Jossey Bass 1986.

For one of the first calls to responsibility along these lines, see the Introduction to Robert Paul Wolff (ed.), Political Man and Social Man, New York: Random House, 1966.

The book was Robert Levine's Ethics and Regulation in Clinical Research, Baltimore: Urban and Schwarzenberg, 2nd edition 1988. The principles first appeared in 1979 in the Belmont Report, a product of the National Commission on the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behaviroal Research; this part of the report was written by Tom Beauchamp (Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University). An excellent exposition of these and derived principles is Tom L. Beauchamp and James F. Childress, Principles of Biomedical Ethics, Fourth Edition, New York: Oxford University Press, 1994.
