Interesting read, particularly in regards to the difference between moral, institutional, and professional ethics. The second chapter introduces an interesting tension between academic freedom and ethics, which requires more detailed exploration. I liked the idea of interpretative communities for ethical discussion and in setting professional standards. Research ethics is classed as institutional ethics in the book, but seems actually to occupy a space somewhere between institutional and professional (discipline-based) ethics. The discussion on teaching ethics and the merits of a case-based approach is helpful in thinking about workshop design and how to approach teaching research ethics.
