About the Authors
  • For forty years, successive editions of Ethical Theory and Business have helped to define the field of business ethics. The 10th edition reflects the current, multidisciplinary nature of the field by explicitly embracing a variety of perspectives on business ethics, including philosophy, management, and legal studies. Chapters integrate theoretical readings, case studies, and summaries of key legal cases to guide students to a rich understanding of business ethics, corporate responsibility, and sustainability. The 10th edition has been entirely updated, ensuring that students are exposed to key ethical questions in the current business environment. New chapters cover the ethics of IT, ethical markets, and ethical management and leadership. Coverage includes climate change, sustainability, international business ethics, sexual harassment, diversity, and LGBTQ discrimination. New case studies draw students directly into recent business ethics controversies, such as sexual harassment at Fox News, consumer fraud at Wells Fargo, and business practices at Uber.

    • Chapters include academic readings from both philosophical and social science perspectives, business case studies, and legal case summaries, leading students to a rich understanding of the theoretical and applied aspects of business ethics
    • Entirely new chapters on IT, markets, and management and leadership reflect key ethical questions facing the modern business environment and the best recent writing on these topics
    • More than twenty newly written case studies draw students into important recent business controversies, such as consumer fraud at Wells Fargo, sexual harassment at Fox news, systemic corruption at FIFA, and business practices at Uber
