Description

Professionals are increasingly under pressure both to be responsive to their clients and to deny them certain services which neither they nor the public purse can afford. Balancing these pressures while maintaining a relationship of mutual trust with clients poses a difficult challenge to doctors, lawyers, the clergy and other professionals. Daryl Koehn argues for a new kind of professional/client relationship in which the professional is not bound by the whims of the client but by a promise to serve the particular good (e.g. health, salvation, social justice...) which both parties must wish to promote. Only through taking on this role can professionals preserve their self-esteem and moral legitimacy. The Ground of Professional Ethics also examines the difficult practical questions: What can clients justifiably expect from professionals? When may service to a client be legitimately terminated? When can client confidences be broken? Should professionals resist political pressure? The Ground of Professional Ethics will help professionals and the public to re-think what professionals owe clients. It also explores the responsibilities of the clients to the professionals whose help they desire. This book will be of great value to professionals as well as to students and teachers of ethics. Daryl Koehn is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. She has published numerous articles in the field of professional and business ethics and regularly consults with corporations on ethical matters.
