Value dissonance and ethics failure in academia: A causal connection? [Book Review]

Journal of Academic Ethics 6 (1):17-32 (2008)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Ethics failure in academia is not new, yet its prevalence, causes, and methods to prevent it remain a matter of debate. The author’s premise is that value dissonance underlies most of the reasons ethics failure occurs. Vignettes are used to illustrate value dissonance at the individual and institutional levels. Suggestions are offered for ways academic institutions can assume greater responsibility as a moral agency to prevent the occurrence of ethics failure.
