Accelerating Moral Development through Use of Experiential Ethical Dilemmas

William A. Wines, Holly L. Anderson, Michael P. Fronmueller

Abstract


For over twelve years, we have been using ethical dilemma situations to encourage business seniors at our university to examine some of their automatic stances in areas of business management. This is done in the context of an upper-division ethics course in which the students are first thoroughly acquainted with major schools of moral philosophy and their limitations. Because of the increasingly global nature of commerce, much of this effort is done from the perspective of cross-cultural ethics, although not always in multinational situations (Greider, 1997). Cross-cultural ethics can be encountered without leaving town almost anywhere in the USA (Wines & Napier, 1992).
