Ethics in Technical Communication: A Critique and Synthesis
Access a Copy
Drawing on theories of ethics from Aristotle through Foucault and on the research literature, the director of technical communications at Boise Stae U. explores the relationship between ethics and the rhetoric used by technical communication professionals in developing his own ethical decision-making approach. This sensitively realistic approach is then applied to issues and cases with analyses (e.g., of the Intel Pentium case) of five topics of interest to those in this field: truth-telling in product information, liability and the duty to instruct and warn, multicultural communication and ethical relativism, intellectual property, and codes of conduct.
