Business as a humanity by Thomas Donaldson( )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together some of the leading scholars in business ethics to address the question: Can business, and business education, be considered one of the humanities, or is it in a class by itself? At a time when business is coming under attack for its apparent transgressions, Business as a Humanity illuminates the special values that inhere in the business world. The chapters investigate business ethics in considerable detail and connect issues of teaching, theoretical ethics, and business education to a guiding concept of business as a humanity. Drawn from departments of humanities as well as from schools of business, the contributors endorse the metamorphosis of business education from its existing state - from a technical, scientifically-inspired regimen - to something broader, more inclusive, and more humanity-driven. While often divided about the best means for achieving this metamorphosis, the contributors all agree that it is necessary. The editors contribute an informative Introduction and an Epilogue to set the debate in its proper context. This latest volume in the acclaimed Ruffin Series in Business Ethics raises questions on the content and purpose of business education in general and business ethics in particular. It will be of interest to students, scholars, and professionals concerned with the role of ethical theory in business education and practice
The ethics of international business by Thomas Donaldson( Book )

21 editions published between 1900 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethics of International Business offers three concepts for interpreting international business ethics: a social contract between productive organizations and society; the notion of a fundamental international right promulgated by ten specific international rights; and a moral "algorithm" to help multinational managers find compromises between conflicting norms in home and host countries. This is the first book to systematically evaluate global business from a moral perspective.--[book jacket]

Ties that bind : a social contracts approach to business ethics by Thomas Donaldson( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors - widely acclaimed for their landmark work with Integrative Social Contracts Theory (ISCT) - suggest that we must reconcile the "empirical" approach to business ethics, which stems from existing business practices, with the "normative" approach, which reflects hypothetical contracts between economic participants. To illustrate the implications of their ISCT method, Donaldson and Dunfee address practical issues, from gender conflicts and bribery to host country relations and selling derivatives on Wall Street. They cite examples from well-known companies, including AT & T, Levi-Strauss, and Royal Dutch/Shell, throughout
