Adam Ferguson : selected philosophical writings by Adam Ferguson( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A philosopher and historian, Adam Ferguson occupies a unique place within eighteenth-century Scottish thought. A man of energy and verve, he made important contributions to social and moral theory, political philosophy and to the study of history. Reared in the highlands of Scotland, he lived most of his life in the enlightenment world of Edinburgh, participating in the city's social clubs and in the broader public and intellectual life of his nation. Renowned for An Essay on the History of Civil Society (1767), he also wrote pamphlets on political issues, published works of moral and political philosophy, authored a multi-volume history of the Roman Republic and composed numerous manuscript essays. Distinguished by a moral and historical bent, his work is framed within a teleological outlook that upholds the importance of action and virtue in the emerging commercial society of the eighteenth century."--Publisher description

The Routledge companion to business ethics by Eugene Heath( )

13 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The field of business ethics continues to expand intellectually and geographically. During the past five decades, scholars have developed and deepened their inquiries into the ethics of commercial and corporate conduct. This Companion provides a novel overview of the discipline of business ethics, covering the major areas of the field as well as new and emerging topics. The eight thematic units range over an extraordinary set of subjects and include chapters on the history and pedagogy of business ethics, moral philosophy, the nature of business, responsibilities within the firm, economic institutions, the 2008 financial crisis, globalization, and business ethics in different regions of the world. Led by a well-respected editorial team, this unique volume gathers an international array of experts whose various critical approaches yield insights from areas such as public policy, economics, law, and history, in addition to business and philosophy. With its fresh analyses, wide scope, and clarity of approach, this volume will be an essential addition to library collections in business, management, and applied ethics." -- Publisher's description
Wealth, commerce, and philosophy : foundational thinkers and business ethics( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The moral dimensions of how we conduct business affect all of our lives in ways big and small, from the prevention of environmental devastation to the policing of unfair trading practices, from arguments over minimum wage rates to those over how government contracts are handed out. Yet for as deep and complex a field as business ethics is, it has remained relatively isolated from the larger, global history of moral philosophy. This book aims to bridge that gap, reaching deep into the past and traveling the globe to reinvigorate and deepen the basis of business ethics. Spanning the history of western philosophy as well as looking toward classical Chinese thought and medieval Islamic philosophy, this volume provides business ethicists a unified source of clear, accurate, and compelling accounts of how the ideas of foundational thinkers - from Aristotle to Friedrich Hayek to Amartya Sen - relate to wealth, commerce, and markets. The essays illuminate perspectives that have often been ignored or forgotten, informing discussion in fresh and often unexpected ways. In doing so, the authors not only throw into relief common misunderstandings and misappropriations often endemic to business ethics but also set forth rich moments of contention as well as novel ways of approaching complex ethical problems. Ultimately, this volume provides a bedrock of moral thought that will move business ethics beyond the ever-changing opinions of headline-driven debate
Adam Ferguson : history, progress and human nature by Eugene Heath( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasing numbers of scholars have recognized Ferguson's contribution to Enlightenment thinking, but no collections of scholarly essays have been devoted to him. In this, the first of two related monographs, essays range across all of Ferguson's works to investigate his engagement with contemporary events and his contributions to our understanding of history and human action. Unique among the leading figures of the Scottish Enlightenment, Ferguson saw two eighteenth-century revolutions, the American and the French. On these and on many other important contemporary subjects, the views he expressed helped shape public opinion. But his work here also extends back to Roman times, about which he drew comparisons with the society of his day. As shown in these essays, he not only offered his thoughts on and described history, he investigated the nature of history itself
Adam Ferguson : philosophy, politics and society by Eugene Heath( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these essays, scholars analyse Ferguson's philosophical, political and sociological writings and the discourse which they prompted between Ferguson and other important figures such as David Hume and Adam Smith." "Much secondary literature on Ferguson is discussed, which highlights how Ferguson can be best understood as a social theorist who employed elements of many strains of thought to reconcile tensions of modernity. Crucially, Ferguson's thoughts on these far-reaching topics are difficult to classify so have often been misrepresented elsewhere. This book addresses these misconceptions."--Jacket
Morality and the market : ethics and virtue in the conduct of business by Eugene Heath( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a business ethics anthology that covers the foundations of markets, their operations and their effects by incorporating most traditional business ethics topics while introducing new ones as well. The result is a text with diversity of opinion, philosophical depth and breadth of topic, accompanied throughout by a knowledgeable and sympathetic account of the traditional issues in business ethics. The author places special and distinctive emphasis on virtue and its applicability to the contexts of commerce. Each of the traditional topics of business ethics is related to particular virtues. For example, honesty is related to advertising and sales; integrity is related to whistle-blowing; social responsibility is related to business profit; and courage is related to entrepreneurship. The book explores the moral foundations of markets, their moral consequences, and considers the effects of commerce on the arts, culture, the environment and technological progress

Lost Women of Rock Music, The by Eugene Heath( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Britain during the late 1970s and early 1980s, a new phenomenon emerged, with female guitarists, bass-players, keyboard-players and drummers playing in bands. This sudden influx of female musicians into the male domain of rock music was brought about partly by the enabling ethic of punk rock ('anybody can do it!') and partly by the impact of the Equal Opportunities Act. But just as suddenly as the phenomenon arrived, the interest in these musicians evaporated and other priorities became important to music audiences. Helen Reddington investigates the social and commercial reasons for how the
