  1. Epistemology, Moral Philosophy and Optimism: A Comparative Analysis Between Managers and their Subordinates.Mohammed Y. A. Rawwas, Hadi Abdul-Rahman Hammoud & Karthik N. S. Iyer - 2019 - Business and Society Review 124 (1):5-42.
    The process of making ethical judgments is much more complex than studying only personal moral philosophy variables (idealism and relativism).

    This paper applies emerging research on epistemic virtues to business ethics.
