Explain the basic legalist position and the basic anti-legalist position in relation to professional responsibility.
Explain interpretative obedience, as Davis understands it, and explain why he thinks this interpretation of “just following the rules” satisfies professional responsibility.
In the context of professional ethics, anti-legalists claim that legalism would encourage professionals to perform at the inadequate level of the ethical minimum. Davis denies this and maintains that following the rules of one’s professional code of ethics is sufficient for being a responsible professional. Which of these two positions do you agree with, and why?
