This is an entry on the role of philosophy, and philosophers, in professional education within Australia and New Zealand. It reviews the professional areas in which philosophers teach, and identifies ethics and critical reasoning as the two main foci of teaching. Some key issues in both areas are addressed, including engagement with practitioners and an increasing focus on non-Western ethical values.
