Steven M. Cahn

Saints and Scamps: Ethics in Academia, 25th anniversary edition
(Rowman & Littlefield, 2010)

In this 25th anniversary edition, Cahn has updated and expanded upon his critical look at the duties and responsibilities of college professors, presenting us with a masterfully decisive and learned probe into the ethical standards and practices of the academic world. Cahn discusses issues from grades to degree requirements and from tenure to the ethics of teaching, and criticizes graduate programs for failing to teach doctoral students how to teach. He demonstrates what makes a wonderful professor and what constitutes professorial malpractice. This is not just a book for college professors, but a book that should be read by parents, students, school administrators, and anyone interested in what teachers do and how they should do it. Steven M. Cahn (Prof., GC) is on the doctoral faculty in philosophy and urban education.
