TITLE: A Modern Understanding of Ethics in Physics

ABSTRACT: What are considered ethical principles and ethical behavior in physics have evolved considerably in the past 20 years. In this talk I will describe the history and changes in thinking, as well as the role of the American Physical Society in the process. The community has come to appreciate the crucial importance of professional pressures in unethical behavior, leading to newly focused thinking about how physics and other scientific professions might aspects of their cultures and improve ethics awareness and education.
