  1. An Ethical Revision of the Status Quo.S. Douglas Beets - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):1-32.
    As currently designed, the business corporation is primarily designed for one simple purpose: the enrichment of stockholders. Considering the immense size and wealth of many modern corporations, however, this prioritized focus has deleterious ethical consequences, including a burgeoning wealth gap between those who own or manage the corporation and employees. Several individuals and organizations are calling for a redesign of the business corporation to benefit those affected by business organizations, such as employees and communities. One such design, developed in the (...)

    Retrieving Aristotle’s Phronesis.Gerald F. Cavanagh & Oliver F. Williams - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):33-58.
    Most executives recognize that the long-term financial health, prosperity and survival of their firm depend upon leaders who have good moral character. The article argues that a retrieval of Aristotle’s work on character and virtue can bring new clarity on how to identify and select leaders of our business institutions. The study presents a discussion of Aristotle’s phronesis or practical wisdom and how this focus might aid and abet the selection of appropriate leaders. The original contribution offered here centers on (...)

    Retail Practitioners’ Views Vs. Ideal Theoretical Positions Concerning Ethical Business Practices with Garment Suppliers.Geert Demuijnck & Patrick Murphy - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):59-92.
    The paper analyzes managers’ stance toward the ethical responsibility of those who work for multinational garment retailers. Most are charged with the social compliance policies affecting relationships with subcontractors. This study is based on interviews conducted with major European and American retailers. Our research question is: what is the normative stance of our respondents? We find that they reject the ideological way in which the normative debate on sweatshops has been conducted by business ethicists during the last decades. These executives’ (...)

    Promoting Professional Socialization.Dayoung Kim - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):93-114.
    During the professional socialization process, nascent professionals internalize the moral values of their profession. Since professional socialization begins in professional schools, this article provides a new conceptual framework for professional ethics education which highlights the affective aspects of moral formation. To create the conceptual framework, this article synthesizes the ideas of Durkheim, Kohlberg, Hoffman, and Haidt on moral formation, with Durkheim as a common thread. In this conceptual framework, the internalization process is influenced and promoted by social discipline, which includes (...)

    Refining the Ethics of Leadership-as-Practice.Joseph A. Raelin - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):139-156.
    The field of leadership-as-practice is beginning to mature as a theory of leadership in direct opposition to standard leadership, which views the individual as the mainstay of leadership experience. Nor does it focus on the dyadic relationship between leaders and followers, which historically has been the starting point for any discussion of leadership. Rather, it is concerned with how leadership emerges and unfolds through day-to-day experience. In this ongoing and evolving activity, questions of ethics arise which challenge what appears to (...)
