The text combines coverage of the major systems of ethical reasoning with lots of applications, including case studies in each chapter investigating ethics within many fields: interpersonal communication, organizational communication, political communication, and mass communication/media. By incorporating a simple framework for ethical reasoning, students will be able to develop their own understanding of the various criteria for making ethical judgments. Features Presents an overview of the major systems of ethical reasoning and applications. Part 1 presents the major systems of ethical reasoning throughout history: virtue ethics, universalistic systems of ethics, utilitarianism and egalitarian theories of ethics, dialogic ethics, and postmodern and feminist perspectives. Part 2 covers applications of ethics in various communicative settings, so that students can see how the major systems are applied in the real world. Offers a case study in each chapter, illustrating principles related to the chapter topic. The case studies provide students with an opportunity to apply concepts that they learn while developing their critical thinking skills. Develops a capstone with the last chapter to assist instructors and students in pulling together the various themes and topics discussed throughout the text. Gives a framework for ethical reasoning that is easy for instructors to teach and easy for students to learn. The text borrows a model from argumentation theory - three forms of propositions: Fact, Value, and Policy - thereby allowing students to develop an understanding of the various criteria that have been formulated for making ethical judgments. Praise for "Communicating Ethically" Throughout the book, the authors had an excellent selection of examples. The examples were often from prominent incidents, and they were interesting cases to consider. I found this book to be very well written. And overall, I was very impressed -- it exceeded my expectations by a considerable margin... I strongly recommend this book. Jonathan Hess, University of Missouri, Columbia The writing style is excellent. L. David Schuelke, Bethel College

Ethical Traceability and Communicating Food

The theme of this book evolved from the idea of linking three concepts around food: traceability, ethics and informed choice. We believe that the current devel- ment and implementation of traceability in the agri-food sector offers an interesting way not only of handling food safety but also of addressing and communicating ethical issues arising from current food production practices. Practices in the agri-food sector worry food consumers (as we all are, since we need to eat and drink to stay alive). But how can consumers act upon their concerns? Paradoxically, although consumers are bombarded with information on food – from the media, the food industry, food authorities, NGOs and interest groups – details about how foods are actually produced is often hard to find. Much of the infor- tion available is superficial, conflicting or partial, and it is hard for consumers seeking to mak e informed food choices to know which information to trust. The consumers we interviewed for this project felt that information about food products was withheld and manipulated. Traceability, which provides a record of the history and journey of a given food, and which is increasingly used in the food sector for legal and commercial reasons, has the potential to communicate a more authentic picture of how food is produced.

Cultivating Cosmopolitanism for Intercultural Communication

This book engages the notion of cosmopolitanism as it applies to intercultural communication, which itself is undergoing a turn in its focus from post-positivistic research towards critical/interpretive and postcolonial perspectives, particularly as globalization informs more of the current and future research in the area. It emphasizes the postcolonial perspective in order to raise critical consciousness about the complexities of intercultural communication in a globalizing world, situating cosmopolitanism—the notion of global citizenship—as a multilayered lens for research. Cosmopolitanism as a theoretical repertoire provides nuanced descriptions of what it means to be and communicate as a global citizen, how to critically study interconnectedness within and across cultures, and how to embrace differences without glossing over them. Moving intercultural communication studies towards the global in complex and nuanced ways, this book highlights crucial links between globalization, transnationalism, postcolonialism, cosmopolitanism, social injustice and intercultural communication, and will help in the creation of classroom spaces devoted to exploring these links. It also engages the links between theory and praxis in order to move towards intercultural communication pedagogy and research that simultaneously celebrates and interrogates issues of cultural difference with the aim of creating continuity rather than chasms. In sum, this book orients intercultural communication scholarship firmly towards the critical and postcolonial, while still allowing the incorporation of traditional intercultural communication concepts, thereby preparing students, scholars, educators and interculturalists to communicate ethically in a world that is simultaneously global and local.
