Abstract:

New, and yet familiar, hypothetical cases are debated and agonized over by eminent leaders from government, business, science and academia. Ethics in America II follows its predecessor by exploring gripping ethical dilemmas using the time-honored Socratic Dialogue format. The programs can be used with a discussion guide to help teachers engage their students in the process of ethical reasoning and acquaint them with its traditions through historical essays and other writings. A Web site with background on the programs and issues is coordinated with the series. Produced by Fred Friendly Seminars. 2007. Program Description: John Fairfield, a former prosecutor and respected state trial judge, is thinking of pursuing a life-long dream: a seat on the state Supreme Court. In Fairfield's state, Centralia, all the judges are chosen in nonpartisan elections, with no limits on what can be spent - or said - in the process of campaigning. Fairfield wonders what will be required of him - especially regarding fundraising and political advertising in what will be a fiercely contested statewide campaign - and what the implications might be for the ethical integrity of the judiciary.
