AbstractThe author of this article argues that misconduct an ethical lapses in the professions is not a problem of a lack of ethical instruction, but rather of individuals not living up to the standards held by their profession. The author analyzes four types of excuses used in instances of ethical lapses, and how these excuses reflect the reality of the way professions are organized and the way they function.
