THE ETHICS BOOM, PHILOSOPHY AND THE UNIVERSITY

Early versions of this chapter were presented to the Chicago Chapter of the America Society for Public Administration, 22 June 1989; the Western Michigan Chapter of the American Society of Fund Raising Executives, Grand Rapids, 21 September 1989; the Southwestern Section of the Michigan Society of Professional Engineers, Kalamazoo, 3 October 1989; and the Center for Ethics Studies, Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 27 October 1989. I should like to thank those present, and my colleagues at IIT, especially, Sohair ElBaz and Jing Li, for helping me to fit the pieces together.

The philosophically sophisticated literature-much of it the work of philosopher-lawyers-was only beginning to appear the year I first taught legal ethics. See, for example, Richard Wasserstrom, “Lawyers as Professionals: Some Moral Issues, ” Human Right, 1975, vol. 5, pp. 1-24.

The best of these, Vern Countryman and Ted Finman (eds), The Lawyer in Modern Society, Boston, Little, 1966, begins with the observation that “law teaching focuses on law almost to the exclusion of the lawyer.” I used instead Maynard E. Pirsig (ed.), Professional Responsibility, St. Paul, West, 1970-a text going back to 1949-because it had been revised for the new code. None of the texts then
