Since its inception thirty years ago, business ethics has benefited from the interdisciplinary contributions by management, political theory, sociology, and, of course, philosophy. This volume provides an updated examination of the role that moral and political philosophy can play in addressing problems in business ethics. The essays contained within its pages represent the work of new scholars and address a wide array of foundational issues such as distributive justice within firms, human rights, ethical challenges of international business, the role of virtue in business management, entrepreneurship and the relationship of markets and market actors with democratic institutions. In an important sense, this collection traces where philosophy has been and where it is headed within business ethics. Each of the contributions represent new work that, at once, strengthens the theoretical foundations of normative business ethics and provides practical insight for non-philosophers working in the field.

This important collection of original essays by a new generation of business ethics scholars offers a variety of perspectives on the possibilities and the limitations of ethical theory in business ethics teaching and research. As business ethics has become more interdisciplinary and practice-focused, the role of ethical theory in the field has been both challenged and transformed. So the publication of these essays comes at an opportune time for a fresh assessment of old developments and new directions for ethical theory in business ethics. (John R. Boatright)

It is a wonderful collection of fresh voices on the normative foundations of business ethics. These are significant contributions to the literature that truly add value. (Goodpaster, Kenneth E.)
