Abstract

It occurred to me that the metaphor of a goat rodeo aptly describes what I often experience when I try to manage challenging ethical dilemmas. Typically, an ethical dilemma invites differing perspectives in a common effort to reach a joint solution. The challenge, to push the goat rodeo metaphor, is to figure out how to blend these perspectives to produce a good outcome.
