APA Solicits Code of Conduct Suggestions

Last year, the American Philosophical Association (APA) appointed a task force to determine whether a code of conduct for professional philosophers is warranted. The task force deliberated on the matter and concluded that yes, there should be such a code (previously).

Now, according to a post at the APA website, the task force is soliciting suggestions about what such a code should contain. Nancy Holland (Hamline U.), the chair of the committee, writes:

The task force now seeks input from APA members as it develops a code of conduct for the APA. Please send your suggestions to [email protected]By submitting your ideas, you will be helping to establish a set of guidelines regarding the wide range of professional responsibilities of philosophers, especially those in which ethical challenges might arise. Thank you for participating in this important endeavor.

Feel free to discuss suggestions here.
