Abstract and Keywords

Advice is an inherently communicative act. Because it deals with human well-being, it is also, unavoidably, of ethical concern. The essays in this volume provide a wide and rich ground for speculating about the interplay of advice, communication, and ethics. This brief set of reflections discusses some of the features of advice that render it amenable to ethical analysis, and then considers the ethics of advising as understood from four ethical perspectives—deontology, consequentialism, virtue, and care. Throughout, the chapter highlights content from the chapters, ethical considerations for the practice of advising, and possible directions for further study.

Keywords: advice, ethics, agent, care, consequentialism, deontology, exigence, virtue
