Simon Text Referenced by Chronicle of Higher Education
In a Chronicle of Higher Education article about a CUNY graduate seminar in academic ethics, a text written by Robert Simon, the Marjorie and Robert W. McEwen Professor of Philosophy, is referenced as the one that the class was using. The course on the ethics of teaching and research is described as “one of the few such courses that has ever been taught” with one theme being that “college instructors should be constantly mindful that they have been entrusted with their students' intellectual and personal growth—and that it is always possible for teachers to do damage.”
The article, “Course reminds Budding Ph.D.’s of the Damage They Can Do, appeared on Oct. 25. Simon’s text is Neutrality and the Academic Ethic, a 1994 volume that is part of a 15-book series on academic published by Rowman & Littlefield.
