Back cover copy

This volume brings together some of the leading scholars in business ethics to address the question: Can business, and business education, be considered one of the humanities, or is it in a class by itself? At a time when business is coming under attack for its apparent transgressions, Business as a Humanity illuminates the special values that inhere in the business world. The chapters investigate business ethics in considerable detail and connect issues of teaching, theoretical ethics, and business education to a guiding concept of business as a humanity. Drawn from departments of humanities as well as from schools of business, the contributors endorse the metamorphosis of business education from its existing state - from a technical, scientifically-inspired regimen - to something broader, more inclusive, and more humanity-driven. While often divided about the best means for achieving this metamorphosis, the contributors all agree that it is necessary. The editors contribute an informative Introduction and an Epilogue to set the debate in its proper context. This latest volume in the acclaimed Ruffin Series in Business Ethics raises questions on the content and purpose of business education in general and business ethics in particular. It will be of interest to students, scholars, and professionals concerned with the role of ethical theory in business education and practice.show more
