What am I again?

Reading an oldish (1970s) review article this morning, I came upon a curious designation for practitioners of my academic field: ethician.



Is that what I am?

Hmm. What a strange word! Perhaps it's intended to convey a discipline in which participants are both students and practitioners of their discipline--like physician.

Still, I think I'm glad it didn't stick. I prefer ethicist.
