This new first edition introduces business students, scholars, and practitioners to moral reasoning as it naturally arises in business decisions.
It works through theories of moral philosophy as active analyses of practical problems rather than finished products, thus seeing moral reasoning as something the readers must engage in as opposed to just learn about.
Through examples and questions that show how one cannot make informed business decisions if one cannot think philosophically, the author identifies, develops, and critically appraises the main approaches in moral philosophy as natural intellectual responses to challenges that business people confront.
