Description

Work and Integrity is a timely resource that examines the crisis as well as the promise of professionalism in contemporary society. This vital book argues for the importance of a new civic professionalism that reflects the ideals of democracy and public service in our ever more complex economic environment. A publication of The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, Work and Integrity explores the most current thinking on the various (and often conflicting) ways in which the concept of professional work is understood. Using examples from the United States and Europe, the author describes how the professions evolved from a limited kind of genteel occupation into one of the most widely emulated and sought--after models of work. The book also explores the rise of complex institutions of industrial and postindustrial society, especially the university and the bureaucratic structures of business, government, health care, and education.

Author Biography

William M. Sullivanis senior scholar at The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Since 1999 he has served as director and series editor for the Preparation for the Professions Program, whose studies compare education across the professions of law, engineering, the clergy, nursing, and medicine, drawing out common themes and identifying distinct practices in the various fields. The author of the first edition of Work and Integrity: The Crisis and Promise of Professionalism in America, and coauthor of the best-selling Habits of the Heart: Individualism and Commitment in American Life as well as its sequel, The Good Society, Sullivan received his doctorate in philosophy from Fordham University and was professor of philosophy at La Salle University before joining the Carnegie Foundation. He has published extensively in social and political theory and ethics as well as education and the professions.
