Ethics and Excellence

Cooperation and Integrity in Business

Robert C. Solomon

The Ruffin Series in Business Ethics

In Ethics and Excellence, renowned scholar Robert C. Solomon asserts that capitalism requires not only capital but character as well, and that the free enterprise system should be defined by its best, and not its more irresponsible, examples. Emphasizing several core concepts--the corporation as community, the search for excellence, the importance of integrity and sound judgment, and a more cooperative and humane vision of business--Solomon stresses the virtues of honesty, trust, fairness, and compassion in the competitive business world, maintaining that the problem of "moral mazes" must be confronted with moral courage.
