Corporate moral agency: A case from literature

Journal of Business Ethics 13 (2):155 - 156 (1994)
  Copy   BIBTEX


I analyze a well-known and moving passage from John Steinbeck''s novelThe Grapes of Wrath. This passage provides an excellent illustration of one of the central questions about corporate moral agency: Is corporate moral agency anything over and above the agency of individual human beings? The passage in question is a debate about whether or not the actions of a particular company are anything over and above the actions of individual human beings.
