"Since its inception thirty years ago, business ethics has benefited from the interdisciplinary contributions by management, political theory, sociology, and, of course, philosophy. Normative Theory and Business Ethics represents the work of new scholars and addresses a wide array of foundational issues such as distributive justice within firms, human rights, ethics of international business, virtue in business management, and the relationship between markets and democratic institutions. This collection traces where philosophy has been and where it is headed with business ethics."--Jacket.
