Inside and outside the insider: A film workshop in practical ethics [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 48 (1):89-97 (2003)
The film The Insider offers an interesting story of leaking inside information by one character and clear whistleblowing by another. In both cases moral considerations are involved on a personal, professional, organizational and public level. As such the film can be used as an inviting cinematic introduction to applied or practical ethics. Three models of practical ethics are introduced. In the film workshop these models are the framework for the film analysis. A set up of the workshop is sketched, including selected scenes, basic questions and a timetable. Also a sketch is given of the results that can be expected.
