Chapter excerpt: This chapter critically explores 'professional ethical wisdom' as the dispostion to engage in judicous practical deliberation in workplace situations in which matters of harm, benefit, rights, and responsibilities are at stake. This entails sensitivity to ethically salient features of situations; empathy with the feelings, values, desires and perspectives of others; the capacity to exercise moral imagination; and good judgement regarding the right choice of action in light of defensible reasons.

    It will be more than usefull to read this book, as wisdom is part of my professional identity. I am a "sage-femme". In a technical and guidelines based  practice, the place of wisdom seems essential to me.
