Title Teaching communication ethics: improving the philosophical mind Summary This essay reflects on the need to develop a more in-depth level of theoretical knowledge and to build upon the capacity for critical reasoning by way of different curriculum subjects in order to further the ethical training of students of journalism. To achieve this goal, attention must be afforded to humanistic matters such as the principles behind politics, rights and social ethics, as well as different epistemological levels of reasoning, and social justice must be shown to be a key to ethical reasoning. Case studies which help apply those theoretical principles in resolving specific problems that develop the sense of equity among students are also a valuable tool. Keywords Ethical training, humanistic matters, critical reasoning, social justice, journalistic ethics.
