Intercultural discourse ethics: Testing trompenaars' and Hampden-Turner's conclusions about americans and the French [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 34 (3-4):145 - 159 (2001)
Are culture driven ethical conflicts apparent in the discourse of the protagonists? A multi-year, multi-cultural study of managers by Trompenaars and Hampden-Turner resulted in two conclusions relevant to business ethics. The first is that intercultural business conflicts can often be traced to a finite set of cultural differences. The second is that enough similarities exist between cultures to provide the grounds for conflict resolution. The research reported here gives credence to their study when applied to an ethical conflict viewed from French and American perspectives.
