Ethics

Readers,

I taking Business Ethics and found the following quote so true that I had to share it.

Learning to care is essential to my ability to take my place in the community. The community, in insisting that its members develop a capacity to care, helps both the individuals and the larger community in the process.

(Liedtka, Jeanne M. “Feminist Morality and Competitive Reality.” Business Ethics Quarterly, 1996: Vol. 6, Issue 2. PDF.)

The above quote actually is discussing a version of virtue ethics or ethics of care while focusing on feminist ethics. It’s actually the ability to apply ethics to business and how. I find it fascinating. I just wish I was not such a slow, comprehensive reader.

This particular course is the reason for my lack or rather posting less often.  I apologize about that.

What are you view on ethics and applying it to business? Do you think that it is possible for a business to be ethical in its decisions? What kind of ethics should or could be applied? Utilitarianism, ethical relativism, virtue ethics (ethics of care), feminist ethics, principle-based ethics, or perhaps another form I may not be familiar with. How would it be applied in a business setting?

I would love to hear from you. Please let me know what you think and where you’re from! I know every culture has different views and interested to see the differences from around the world.

Good night,

Laili

  1. You might also look into Catholic Social Doctrine – it has a great deal about business ethics in it and was one of the earliest attempts to address business ethics as it related to manufacturing in the 19th century. jp
