Review quote

Higher education would be well served if all faculty read this monograph...[Markie] challenges us as individual faculty. -- Milton D. Glick, Arizona State University A valuable contribution to a topic urgently needing attention in academia today. Markie's wide-ranging survey is an excellent study of professorial duties. -- Robert Audi, University of Nebraska Peter Markie presents a lucid and provocative analysis of the obligations of a professor, not hesitating to take (and defend) stands where he deems it appropriate, and supplementing his own account with a balanced set of essays by others. -- Robert L. Holmes, University of Rochester All of us who make a living by teaching can benefit from Markie's lucid analyses. I especially recommend the book as a catalyst for departmental and campuswide discussions of our responsibilities as teachers. Ethics: An International Journal of Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy Peter Markie has written an excellent monograph on academic ethics and combined it with a collection of challenging articles. The result is a book that provides everything one needs to start thinking about this timely subject. -- James Rachels, author of Elements of Moral Philosophy
