"As a member of the Rhodes College community, I pledge my full and steadfast support to the Honor System and agree neither to lie, cheat, nor steal, and to report any such violation that I may witness."
For an excellent introduction to Appiah's thoughts on what he calls the "honor world," listen to University of Memphis cultural historian Jonathan Judaken, who interviewed Appiah for NPR's WKNO affiliate. For questions on Appiah's lecture, write to Rhodes professor Scott Newstok at newstoks.edu.
(Corrections: Jonathan Judaken has moved from the University of Memphis to Rhodes, where he's been appointed the first Spence L. Wilson Chair of Humanities. And to reach Scott Newstok "@rhodes": That's, of course, firstname.lastname@example.org.)
