Business Ethics : The State of the Art
This unique collection of essays is the latest volume in the Ruffin Series in Business Ethics. The four lead essays--by Norman Bowie, Kenneth Goodpaster, Thomas Donaldson, and Ezra Bowen--are examples of some of the best thinking about the role of ethics in business. With a combination of wisdom, humor, and insight, these essays examine such issues as the nature of scholarship and knowledge in business ethics, how ethics is a central factor in managerial leadership, the complexities of ethics in multinational and multicultural settings, and the problems of ethical literacy and moral debate in a free society. Each lead essay develops several themes which are then explored by other prominent thinkers, including Robert Solomon, Richard DeGeorge, and Joanne Ciulla.
The book offers the reader a clear and logical approach to an intensely debated and still evolving discipline. Business Ethics: The State of the Art will be an invaluable resource for students of business at all levels, as well as business thinkers, philosophers, and practicing managers.
