    There Are No Codes, Only Interpretations. Practical Wisdom and Hermeneutics in Monastic Organizations.Guillaume Mercier & Ghislain Deslandes - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 145 (4):781-794.
    Corporate codes of ethics, which have spread in the last decades, have shown a limited ability to foster ethical behaviors. For instance, they have been criticized for relying too much on formal compliance, rather than taking into account sufficiently agents and their moral development, or promoting self-reflexive behaviors. We aim here at showing that a code of ethics in fact has meaning and enables ethical progress when it is interpreted and appropriated with practical wisdom. We explore a model that represents (...)

    Formal and Informal Benevolence in a Profit-Oriented Context.Guillaume Mercier & Ghislain Deslandes - forthcoming - Journal of Business Ethics:1-19.
    Faced with the disenchantment and disengagement expressed by their employees, business leaders are considering ways of incorporating more benevolence into managerial practices. Nevertheless, ‘benevolence’—care and concern for the well-being of others—has not yet been studied in an organizational profit-focused context. In this paper, we seek to investigate the emergence and practice of benevolence with an eye on profit and performance. We begin by investigating the main ethical approaches to benevolence—virtue ethical, utilitarian, and deontological. Then, based on an empirical study, we (...)

    Power, Profits, and Practical Wisdom.Ghislain Deslandes - 2012 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 31 (1):1-24.
    The analysis of narrative processes and metaphorical language are the topics generally focused on by business ethics researchers interested in the work of Paul Ricœur. Yet his work on political questions also applies to the ethical issues associated with organizations. Ricœur’s ethical enterprise can be expressed as a triad composed of teleological, deontological, and sapiential levels, associating ostensibly opposing positions of Aristotelian and Kantian origin. In this study, I examine politics, economics, and ethics in their dialectic relation as established by (...)

    Le travail désaffecté ou la joie, enjeu managérial et social.Ghislain Deslandes - 2015 - le Portique 35.
    Souffrance et joie sont les faits indubitables de l’expérience du travail. Nous souhaitons ici interroger philosophiquement, dans cette expérience contemporaine du travail collaboratif, le rôle spécifique du management. En premier lieu, et en trois temps, le texte approfondit les relations complexes que ces notions entretiennent entre elles : travail et management, management et joie, joie et travail. Ensuite, il présente une analyse critique du travail à partir de l’analyse qu’en propose Michel Henry, et montre qu’en management c’est d’abord l’être même (...)

    Indirect Communication and Business Ethics.Ghislain Deslandes & Kenneth Casler - 2011 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 30 (3-4):307-330.
    By deliberately placing ethics under the category of communication, Kierkegaard intended to show that it is like no other science. He distinguished betweendirect communication and indirect communication. Direct communication concerns objectivity and knowledge; indirect communication, on the other hand, has to do with subjectivity (“becoming-subject”). In this paper, the author presents Kierkegaard’s philosophy of communication and ethics with special emphasis on his irony and pseudonymous authorship. He also examines the possibility of a discourse in business ethics, focusing on the educational (...)

    The Care-of-Self Ethic with Continual Reference to Socrates: Towards Ethical Self-Management.Ghislain Deslandes - 2012 - Business Ethics 21 (4):325-338.
    ‘Have you ever taken sufficient care of yourselves?’ By asking the elite Athenian youth this question, Socrates implies that the liberation of self and the capacity to govern are inseparable. Drawing on the lectures given by Michel Foucault at the Collège de France in 1984 – only recently made available to the public – we show the consequences of the return to this ancient care-of-self ethic in the organizational context. After reviewing the contributions made to business ethics by these two (...)

    In Search of Individual Responsibility: The Dark Side of Organizations in the Light of Jansenist Ethics.Ghislain Deslandes - 2011 - Journal of Business Ethics 101 (S1):61-70.
    In showing how the bureaucratic space negatively influences the moral conscience of managers, Robert Jackall’s sociological writings have pointed up one of the darkest sides of organizations. In fact, in the business ethics literature there is much to support Jackall’s pessimistic contentions, suggesting that bureaucracy can rob individual managers of their sense of responsibility. How then can this space for individual freedom, so essential in re-establishing responsible management, be recreated? In order to answer this question, we propose to interpret Jackall’s (...)

    Managerial and Philosophical Intuition in the Thinking of Bergson and Mintzberg.Ghislain Deslandes & Kenneth Casler - 2010 - Philosophy of Management 9 (1):85-101.
    Within the Configuration school the management author Henry Mintzberg contributed a strong criticism of a normative conception of strategic planning, arguing that this is too narrow. The philosopher Henri Bergson embraced the totality of life as a creative evolution which transcends the fullness of a preconceived idea. While Mintzberg attempts to rethink the concept of strategy and Bergson to renew philosophical thought, together they share a vision of a changing and unpredictable world that enables them to discover – above and (...)

    Dans l'univers des médias participatifs, lesquels permettent aux lecteurs de devenir auteurs à leur tour, l'audience constitue autant le moyen que la fin. En guise d'illustration, ce texte propose d'étudier le site coréen OhmyNews, cité dans le monde entier, comme un exemple de support médiatique hybride associant citoyens reporters et reporters citoyens. Cette analyse montre les contradictions du modèle et son incapacité à choisir entre une conception horizontale et une conception verticale de l'information.In the world of participatory media, which allow (...)
