Business Ethics

The State of the Art

Edited by R. Edward Freeman

The Ruffin Series in Business Ethics

This singular collection of essays by the leading scholars in the field examines the emergence of business ethics as an important element of managerial practice and as an integral area of scholarship. The four lead essays--by Norman Bowie, Kenneth Goodpaster, Thomas Donaldson, and Ezra Bowen--represent some of the best thinking about the role of ethics in business, exploring such issues as the nature of scholarship and knowledge in business ethics, ethics as 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. Insightful, comprehensive and uniquely accessible, Business Ethics is essential reading for practicing managers, and for anyone concerned about business and applied ethics.
