What are codes of ethics for?
Graduate studies at Western
|Abstract||The idea of a code of ethics can seem puzzling. What is it, exactly, and how can it bind us? Or can it? Its status, normative if not ontological, seems mysterious. Either its pronouncements are obvious (read: platitudinous), in which case it invites ridicule. Or its pronouncements are not obvious (read: controversial) in which case it arouses suspicion. A third possibility is that its pronouncements are vague. In that case they are useless unless interpreted. When interpreted, they are either obvious, thus platitudinous; or else not obvious, thus controversial.|
