Sometimes a word is worth a thousand words. Or an entire book.
“Ethics” is one of those words, with no shortage of book-length treatments.
The idea for a communication-centered investigation of ethics
and its relationship to professional life arose during the opening session
of George’s ethics class in the spring of 2003. Although the students
weren’t terribly excited by the idea of ethics, they became much
more animated when the discussion shifted to the term “morality.”

We live in an era where success is often defined by over-achievement in either our professional or personal lives. When we focus too much on our business or professional goals, our relationships can suffer. Likewise, when we ignore our professional development needs, our job security or business can be put at risk. We’re thrown into a constant state of unbalance between the relentless and competitive corporate work ethic, the “need-it-now” mentality encouraged by our dependency on technology, and the desire to see, do, and achieve more each day ...

The King is dead; long live the King! That famous cry sums up most aspects of modern
business practice. The previously existing competitive environment, scope, internal
structures, and automation support needs of an enterprise have disappeared and been
replaced by other sets of conditions and requirements. In time, those needs, too, will
disappear and be replaced by yet another set and much more quickly than before. The
concept of “Internet years” applies to most aspects of modern life.

In my professional life I have been asked many times the simple
question: What is transpersonal psychology, counselling or psychotherapy?
The answer is straightforward: it is a broad transcultural theory of
human nature that posits that human beings are more than physical and
psychological beings, with some form of spirituality being a reasonable
bet. Oh, and by the way, it is also a discrete field of study that could be
conceived as having had about 40 years of academic recognition.
Each mental health professional’s life offers a personal opportunity to diminish the sense of
bafflement about how health, suffering, and recovery processes work. Over decades of
work in a mental health field, many of us develop the sense that we better understand
some aspects of psychology and psychopathology. Those who devote themselves to one
subject in a scholarly research fashion seem to have a slightly greater potential to remove
some of the mystery for themselves and others in a particular subject area.
This volume represents an attempt, to the best of my ability, to draw
together a decade of enquiries into the meaning of professionalism,
the relationship of educational theory and practice and the nature of
moral enquiry into a reasonably coherent whole. Although all these
topics have interested me throughout my professional educational life,
the path to this book can be traced back to an attempt in the summer
of 1990 to assemble a full-length exploration of the moral basis of
teaching and educational practice....
EMILE DURKHEIM (1858–1917) remains a major figure
in social science as a whole and he is unambiguously a
‘founding father’ of sociology. Whereas other social
theorists from the classical period of sociology (1890–1920)
were often somewhat ambiguous about their status as
‘sociologists’, Durkheim appears to have had a clear vision of
the importance of building sociology as a science of social facts.

As a youth, I was exposed to football mania in northeastern Ohio. When
I was seven, I read about the University of Illinois football team that played
Army in the new municipal stadium in Cleveland. In the seventh grade, the
boys in my class were photographed as the North Madison Grade School
football team. Lacking the ability and time to play on the high school team,
I described interscholastic games for the school newspaper. As a college freshman,
I played in one game against the local seven-man high school team.
In 1996 the debate regarding the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant
Responsibility Act centered on the necessity to screen foreigneducated
health care professionals seeking employment in the United
States. The focused and controversial discussion also raised cogent
points regarding the qualifications of an entity to perform such an
Based on its established track record in providing credentialing
services to a variety of health occupations, CGFNS International was

When one thinks of baseball, rarely do thoughts of tragedy come to mind. It is a game
associated with warm, sunny days and leisurely outings to the local ballpark. Yet injury and
death have been associated with the game from its beginnings.
Even the most casual fan has heard about baseball’s most renowned fatality, the beaning
death of Cleveland Indians player Ray Chapman. On the afternoon of August 20, 1920, the
Yankees notorious headhunter, Carl Mays, threw a pitch that struck Chapman on the left
To obviate misunderstanding, it seems well to warn the reader that this book aims only at giving a sketch of
George Washington's life and acts. I was interested to discover, if I could, the human residue which I felt sure
must persist in Washington after all was said. Owing to the pernicious drivel of the Reverend Weems no other
great man in history has had to live down such a mass of absurdities and deliberate false inventions. At last
after a century and a quarter the rubbish has been mostly cleared away, and only those who wilfully prefer to
deceive themselves need waste time over...
