'Early Faulkner criticism often followed the trajectory of Faulkner's life, sometimes simply assuming that life had a moral compass. Later schools, for example historical materialism, sought the 'substratum' of material reality that underpinned the narrative, again only assuming that issues, such as the nature and economics of labor, had moral implications. Psychology, anthropology, mythology--all have had their day, often very useful days, often touching on ethical issues--but what has been lacking is ethics itself. Michael Wainwright's Faulkner's Ethics: An Intense Struggle will end that neglect and, I believe, spur a new interest in moral struggle, moral direction as it can be found in Faulkner's life and literature.' - Charles A. Peek, Professor Emeritus, Department of English, University of Nebraska Kearney, USA This book offers the first comprehensive investigation of ethics in the canon of William Faulkner. As the fundamental framework for its analysis of Faulkner's fiction, this study draws on The Methods of Ethics, the magnum opus of the utilitarian philosopher Henry Sidgwick. While Faulkner's Ethics does not claim that Faulkner read Sidgwick's work, this book traces Faulkner's moral sensitivity. It argues that Faulkner's language is a moral medium that captures the ways in which people negotiate the ethical demands that life places on them. Tracing the contours of this evolving medium across six of the author's major novels, it explores the basic precepts set out in The Methods of Ethics with the application of more recent contributions to moral philosophy, especially those of Jacques Derrida and Derek Parfit. .

This specialist work in historical theology deals with the doctrine of salvation in the early theology of Richard Hooker (1554-1600) from the perspective of the concept of faith and with Hooker’s connections to the early English Reformers (W. Tyndale, J. Frith, R. Barnes, T. Cranmer, J. Bradford and J. Foxe) in crucial teachings such as justification, sanctification, glorification, election, reprobation, the sovereignty of God, and salvation of Catholics. The study proves that Hooker’s theology is firstly Protestant (to counter the views which picture it as Catholic) and secondly Calvinist.

'Ethics after Christendom' proposes that the special moral challenge facing churches in post-Christian societies is to center Christian ethics ecclesially while also keeping it both evangelical and catholic. Siding with the diagnosis that North American Christendom has drawn to an end, Vigen Guroian provides an analysis of the present cultural context in which Christian ethics must now be done, discusses the role of churches after Christendom, and shows - through the application of ecclesial ethics to family, medicine, and ecology - how liturgy enriches and deepens the Christian ethical vision.

First published in 1988, the aim of this study is to define the role of religious meaning in the modern novel and to demonstrate that the novel can successfully express a religious feeling, but not a religious commitment. Through the analysis of four novels by Faulkner, Dostoyevsky, Werfel and Bernanos, the work explains why novels with a single definite commitment tend to be implausible and lacking in aesthetic unity. This book will be of interest to those studying religion in 19th Century literature.

To say that the entirety of human experience can be a novelist’s theme is to voice an absurdity. But, as Peter Swiggart convincingly argues, Faulkner’s work can be viewed as an extraordinary attempt to transform the panorama of man’s social experience into thematic material. Faulkner’s two-dimensional characters, his rhetorical circumlocutions, and his technical experiments are efforts to achieve a dramatic focus upon material too unwieldy, at least in principle, for any kind of fictional condensation. Faulkner makes use of devices of stylization that apply to virtually every aspect of his successful novels. For example, the complex facts of Southern history and culture are reduced to the scale of a simplified and yet grandiose social mythology: the degeneration of the white aristocracy, the rise of Snopesism, and the white Southerner’s gradual recognition of his latent sense of racial guilt. Within Faulkner’s fictional universe, human psychology takes the form of absolute distinctions between puritan and nonpuritan characters, between individuals corrupted by moral rationality and those who are simultaneously free of moral corruption and social involvement. In this way Faulkner is able to create the impression of a comprehensive treatment of important social concerns and universal moral issues. Like Henry James, he makes as much as he can of clearly defined dramatic events, until they seem to echo the potential complexity and depth of situations outside the realm of fiction. When this technique is successful the reader is left with the impression that he knows a Faulkner character far better than he could know an actual person. At the same time, the character retains the atmosphere of complexity and mystery imposed upon it by Faulkner’s handling of style and structure. This method of characterization reflects Faulkner’s simplifications of experience and yet suggests the inadequacy of any rigid interpretation of actual behavior. The reader is supplied with special eyeglasses through which the tragedy of the South, as well as humanity’s general inhumanity to itself, can be viewed in a perspective of simultaneous mystery and symbolic clarity.

A systematic approach to using currently available techniques of artificial intelligence to develop computer programs for commercial use. From basic concepts of knowledge engineering through managing a complete system. Schwartz (English, Montclair State College-NJ) asks: How was it possible for a writer, out-of-print and generally ignored in the early 1940s, to be proclaimed a literary genius in 1950? His research illuminates the process by which Faulkner was chosen to be revivified as an important American nationalist writer during the heating up of the Cold War.

This comprehensive Handbook is the first to provide a practical, interdisciplinary review of ethical issues as they relate to quantitative methodology including how to present evidence for reliability and validity, what comprises an adequate tested population, and what constitutes scientific knowledge for eliminating biases. The book uses an ethical framework that emphasizes the human cost of quantitative decision making to help researchers understand the specific implications of their choices. The order of the Handbook chapters parallels the chronology of the research process: determining the research design and data collection; data analysis; and communicating findings. Each chapter: Explores the ethics of a particular topic Identifies prevailing methodological issues Reviews strategies and approaches for handling such issues and their ethical implications Provides one or more case examples Outlines plausible approaches to the issue including best-practice solutions. Part 1 presents ethical frameworks that cross-cut design, analysis, and modeling in the behavioral sciences. Part 2 focuses on ideas for disseminating ethical training in statistics courses. Part 3 considers the ethical aspects of selecting measurement instruments and sample size planning and explores issues related to high stakes testing, the defensibility of experimental vs. quasi-experimental research designs, and ethics in program evaluation. Decision points that shape a researchers’ approach to data analysis are examined in Part 4 – when and why analysts need to account for how the sample was selected, how to evaluate tradeoffs of hypothesis-testing vs. estimation, and how to handle missing data. Ethical issues that arise when using techniques such as factor analysis or multilevel modeling and when making causal inferences are also explored. The book concludes with ethical aspects of reporting meta-analyses, of cross-disciplinary statistical reform, and of the publication process. This Handbook appeals to researchers and practitioners in psychology, human development, family studies, health, education, sociology, social work, political science, and business/marketing. This book is also a valuable supplement for quantitative methods courses required of all graduate students in these fields.

Under the Influence: Ethics and Domesticity in Prohibition-Era Literature explores the ways in which the representations of drinking and drunkenness in Prohibition-era fiction are part of a larger project of modernism that involves the ethics of working through problems of attachment as a way of negotiating familiar forms of sentimentality. I examine the work of four Prohibition-era modernist writers: Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, and Dorothy Parker. Examining ethics in modernist novels can help us understand how these texts go about negotiating sentimentality by examining how they determine right action, or refuse to do so, leaving the ethical work to the reader. I focus on the sentimental as it is manifest in domesticity.^I seek to demonstrate that for modernist writers working in the 1920s, changes in domesticity resulting from Prohibition greatly influenced how these writers employ sentimentality and how they work through ethical problems of attachment. The relationship between domesticity and Prohibition bears closer examination because drinking and drunkenness are so frequently employed by modernist writers to work through problems of attachment. My claim is that across a spectrum of modernist texts from the Prohibition era, there is a continuity of concern regarding the reformulation of the ways in which problems of attachment are approached, especially in regards to the relationship between domesticity and attachment.^Chapter one, "`It's Sort of What We Have Instead of God': Gender and the Ethics of Self-Control in Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises," argues that Hemingway critiques Prohibition's perceived emasculation of the American man by advocating an ethics based on the uses of pleasure and self-control. Using Foucault's work on sexuality and ethics in the ancient world, I demonstrate that Hemingway represents ethics as emanating from appropriateness based on need, timeliness, and status rather than external codes or norms. I also argue that the struggle for self-mastery is central to Hemingway's representation of both ethics and manhood. Finally, I examine the limits of Hemingway's ethical system and argue that the conception of autonomy on which it relies is a modernist reframing of sentiment. Chapter two, "The Ethics of Male Intimacy in The Great Gatsby," examines how modernist writers work through male intimacy through an analysis of The Great Gatsby.^I argue that Fitzgerald rejects masculine domesticity in favor of a masculine ethics based on fidelity to male homosocial bonds. I also argue that Fitzgerald uses intoxication to critique an individualist ethics based on an autonomous wise man, like that posited by Hemingway, further emphasizing the relational nature of ethics and masculinity. I conclude by examining how Fitzgerald's use of an unreliable narrator represents modernist ambivalence towards realist sentimentality. Chapter three, "`Put a Mississippian in Alcohol and You Have a Gentleman': Respectability in William Faulkner's Sanctuary," examines how respectability influences attachment. Using Foucault's concept of problematization, I argue that Faulkner advocates an ethics of problematization that seeks to situate manhood within individualism, family, and community. I briefly describe how respectability was a contested term during the Prohibition-era.^I then examine how Faulkner uses drinking and drunkenness to problematize respectability and its ethics. Finally, I consider Sanctuary in relation to modernist aesthetics of difficulty. Chapter four, "`You Might as Well Live': Drinking, Repetition, and the Ethics of Survival in Dorothy Parker's Short Fiction," explores how Dorothy Parker, a writer long excluded from modernism because of her gender and because of her sentimentality, works through problems of attachment as problems of survival. I argue that Parker's short fiction explores the ways in which individuals employ and refine the cultural models of çthos available to them in order to survive asymmetrical relations of power. First, I discuss Foucault's concept of practices of freedom and models. I then explore how Parker uses character types as the basis for çthos and practices of freedom and how these types relate to domesticity and drinking in the Prohibition-era.^I conclude by examining how Parker combines these character types with repetition to push the types to their limits, forcing moments of rupture where abuses of power are exposed.

The field of ethics is expanding and has assumed new significance as a compulsory part of study for psychiatrists and all mental health professionals. Ethics and Mental Health: The Patient, Profession and Community presents a new approach to these ethical dilemmas that have become an increasing part of modern practice. The book begins by exploring current normative theories of psychiatric ethics. It describes how empirical methods can make codes of conduct more representative of professional values. Considering their previous work, concepts of justice, and the moderate communitarian position, the authors outline their methodology, which argues that mental health professionals exist within a perpetual state of tension, caused by conflicts between the Hippocratic Oath, personal values, notions of social justice, and the potentially harmful influences of their social role. Applying their theory to the area of involuntary psychiatric treatment, the authors address the context of psychiatric practice and the moral agency of psychiatrists. They outline the different influences on the craft of psychiatry to better illustrate the diverse forces that impact moral deliberation and the practice of ethics in mental health. In doing so, they cover areas as diverse as cultural, economic, scientific, and political domains. The final section of the book applies the methodology to contemporary problems in mental health ethics, formulating how mental health clinicians can approach these quandaries. The book brings a new perspective to classic dilemmas from the past, to contemporary challenges, and in anticipation, to new concerns that will inevitably arise in a dynamic and complex professional context.

Law Enforcement Ethics: Classic and Contemporary Issues for the New Millennium covers many of the important facets of law enforcement ethics, including the selection, training, and supervision of officers. Editor Brian D. Fitch brings together the works of a diverse task force with a vested interested in reducing officer misconduct—including law enforcement scholars, educators, and practitioners from a variety of disciplines—to present a comprehensive look at this critical subject that is gaining more attention in agencies and in the media today. The text covers topics on the roles of culture, environment, social learning, policy, and reward systems as they pertain to law enforcement ethics, as well as the ethics of force, interrogations, marginality, and racial profiling. This volume also covers several unique aspects of ethics, such as the role of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in misconduct (PTSD), cheating during law enforcement promotional practices, off-duty misconduct, and best practices in developing countries.

Seventy-one stories receive individual critical analysis and evaluation. These discussions reveal the relationship of the stories to the novels and point up Faulkner's skills as a writer of short fiction. Although Faulkner often spoke disparagingly of the short story form and claimed that he wrote stories for moneywhich he didEdmond L. Volpe's study reveals that Faulkner could not escape even in this shorter form his incomparable fictional imagination nor his mastery of narrative structure and technique.

As we move forward into the Third Millennium AD the perennial problem of unmanageable debt is still with us. As if to prove the point, in late November 1997, the Tokuyo City Bank in Japan closed down its business, reminding the world that default still stalks families, institutions and governments. It seems that little has been achieved in handling debt since 1216 when the Magna Carta limited the actions of bailiffs against debtors willing and able to make payment. Current literature about consumer credit, business finance and mortgages reveals the urgent need to tackle the ethics of borrowing and lending on some commonly understood and acceptable basis. In this book, the stewardship concept familiar in accounting, corporate governance, environmental strategy and Christian social ethics is analyzed to provide a framework. The book demonstrates that analysis of the concept of stewardship provides a set of resource-related social values which shed light upon ethical issues in debt management and enable the construction of a decision support model to secure improvements in debt management practice.
