Overall he thinks that Australian football should see itself as a ‘community of practice’, with an understanding of its own ‘internal goods’ that can be the basis for ethical education on the league. The two remaining chapters focus on ‘ethics training’ in corporations. Howard Harris discusses ‘Ethics Training for Corporate Boards’. Can boards of directors benefit from ethical training? Harris acknowledges that ‘ethics is learnt through practice and example’ and presents a case for practice and example leading to greater integrity in board processes.

Suppose that we were assessing our success in promoting integrity. In that case, surely, mere coincidence would not do as an answer to our question. So too, our efforts would not count as successful if the answer to our question were fear of sanctions, or that the agent had been programmed (by means of rote memorization) or had mechanically applied the rule to the situation at hand. Having placed an act in an appropriate category of wrongs sets the stage for a syllogistic/mechanical handling of the case: All acts in category 1 are wrong.

The latter also has serious consequences, as for example, when overly zealous enforcement of rules entails results that are widely regarded as simply absurd, which encourages the thought that what we’re about is silly rather than serious. In either case, then, ethics and integrity come to be seen as a trifle; a fool’s game, frivolous, a waste of time. Put another way, whether we run up on the rocks or are sucked into the whirlpool, the upshot is severe injury or worse to the project, as if only a fool could believe that a man could indeed be a knave.
