Business ethics by Norman E Bowie( Book )

43 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is more important than ever that a business must be both ethical and profitable. In this thoroughly revised and updated second edition, Norman E. Bowie shows that by applying Kant's three formulations of the categorical imperative, and by doing the right thing for the right reason, a business can achieve success in both of these fields. Bowie uses examples such as building trust, transparency through open book management, and respecting employees by providing a living wage and meaningful work. This new edition, for graduates and academic researchers in the field of business ethics, has been heavily revised to include the newest scholarship on Kantian ethics, with a new emphasis on Kant's later moral and political theory, a workable account of Kantian capitalism, and additional accounts on corporate social responsibility, Kantianism and human rights, corporate moral agency, and the Kantian theory of meaningful work

The individual and the political order : an introduction to social and political philosophy by Norman E Bowie( Book )

28 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fourth edition of The Individual and the Political Order provides a careful, accessible, and reasoned liberal justification for the democratic state and political authority. The central feature of liberalism is the commitment to individual autonomy. The authors show how that commitment provides a defense of democracy, and they give a liberal interpretation to such core values as liberty, equality, and political authority. Although the authors support liberal theory, they also provide a sympathetic treatment of the critics of liberalism. The authors give a sound explanation of such positions as feminist political theory, communitarianism, and postmodernism, but they also argue persuasively that these theories fall short as adequate theories of the political order. A significant feature of the new edition is the treatment of international issues and globalization, particularly the war on terrorism and poverty in the third world."--Jacket

Ethics and agency theory : an introduction by Norman E Bowie( Book )

13 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work focuses on agency theory, which involves what is known as the principal-agent problem, a topic widely discussed in economics and management, and which is fast becoming a concern in business ethics today." "Previously, little written about agency theory has included a discussion of ethics. This work examines both. In Ethics and Agency Theory, the authors demonstrate that it is a characteristic of nearly all modern business firms - that the principals (the owners and shareholders) are not the same people as the agents (the managers who run the firms for the principals). They show that this creates situations in which the goals of the principals may not be the same as those of the agents. The principals typically want growth in profits and stock price, while agents are generally concerned with growth in salaries and positions in the hierarchy. The self-interest of the manager is apparently in conflict with the manager's duty to owners." "This book explores the ethical consequences of agency theory through contributions by ethicists, economists, and management theorists. By bringing together such a varied group of contributors (such as Richard DeGeorge, Lisa Newton, J. Gregory Dees, Barry Mitnick, and Bill Lawson) the editors provide a forum in which to promote this important dialogue between ethicists and economists."--Jacket
Business ethics in the 21st century by Norman E Bowie( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work provides a critical look at business practice in the early 21st century and suggests changes that are both practical and normatively superior. Several chapters present a reflection on business ethics from a societal or macro-organizational point of view. It makes a case for the economic and moral superiority of the sustainability capitalism of the European Union over the finance-based model of the United States. Most major themes in business ethics are covered and some new ones are introduced, including the topic of the right way to teach business ethics. The general approach adopted in this volume is Kantian. Alternative approaches are critically evaluated

Cutting-edge issues in business ethics : continental challenges to tradition and practice by Mollie Painter-Morland( )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is one of the very few publications dedicated to the challenges that Continental philosophy poses to the field of Business Ethics. The authors want to draw attention to the work of Continental philosophers who have been relegated to the fringes of Business Ethics scholarship, and present some critical perspectives that have been ignored within Business Ethics practice. As such, this volume provides a critique of many of the assumptions that underpin traditional approaches to Business Ethics, and urges its readership to rethink moral agency and epistemology, as well as Business Ethics pedagogy."--BOOK JACKET
