Description

This text argues that ethical principles should not derive from abstract theory, but from the real world of experience in organizations. It shows how ethical principles derive from what workers learn in their communities (firms) and that an ethical firm is one that creates a good life for the workers who contribute to its mission. Its approach is based on the Aristotelian tradition of refined common sense, from recent work on collective action problems in organizations and from social contract theory.show more

Review quote

"Ed Hartman's Organizational Ethics and the Good Life is one of the very best books yet written on business ethics. Drawing from a rich background in both management and philosophy Hartman paints us a picture of community, morality and culture in corporate life that is thoughtful, insightful and witty. This book is much recommended."--Robert C. Solomon, Department of Philosophy, University of Texas at Austinshow more
