ABSTRACT

Professionals or professional organizations understand self-regulation as a conjunction of autonomy and regulation. The public, however, view selfregulation as regulation which focuses on surveillance and punishment. Such a gap between professional organizations and the general public results in unsatisfactory effects which warrant neither efficacy nor the public character of self-regulation. Indeed, it is an unavoidable result when we account for self-regulation only in terms of social contract theory. So, this article aims to explain and analyze the concept of self-regulation in professionalism and the moral foundation of self-regulation in virtue of the concept of loyalty. In order to complete this work, we, firstly, explicate the concept of selfregulation and then complement its concept in terms of loyalty. The concept of loyalty helps to combine and band the members of organizations and communities which form interdependant relationships. Besides, it prevents external threats and misunderstandings. Thus, we should study the specific contents of professional loyalty and its relationship to other virtues. If it is completed, then we can take professional loyalty as a practical principle for self-regulation.
