    Interpreting the Virtues of Mindfulness and Compassion: Contemplative Practices and Virtue-Oriented Business Ethics.Kevin T. Jackson - 2018 - Humanistic Management Journal 3 (1):47-69.
    The article aims to provide a standpoint from which to critically address two broad concerns. The first concern surrounds a naïve view of mindfulness, which takes it as a given that it is a good thing to cultivate mindfulness and attendant qualities like compassion because these virtues are key to improving the quality of life and bettering effective decisionmaking within business. Yet the virtue of mindfulness has roots in religious and spiritual traditions, and the virtue of compassion is complex and (...)

    Towards Authenticity: A Sartrean Perspective on Business Ethics.Kevin T. Jackson - 2005 - Journal of Business Ethics 58 (4):307-325.
    Taking a Sartrean existentialist viewpoint towards business ethics, in particular, concerning the question of the nature of businesspersons’ moral character, provides for a dramatically distinct set of reflections from those afforded by the received view on character, namely that of Aristotelian-based virtue ethics. Insofar as Sartre’s philosophy places human freedom at center stage, I argue that the authenticity with which a businessperson approaches moral situations depends on the degree of consciousness he or she has of the various choices at stake.

    Spirituality as a Foundation for Freedom and Creative Imagination in International Business Ethics.Kevin T. Jackson - 1999 - Journal of Business Ethics 19 (1):61 - 70.
    Spirituality, in the broad sense, provides a deeper foundation for principles of international business ethics than legalistic, command-based ethics programs. Spiritual-based principles and values are presupposed and endorsed by established legal and ethical principles for international business. Identifying such spiritual-based principles and values requires the exercise of moral imagination and an openness to values embraced by the world's religions. Once identified, a new realm of moral freedom is attained for multinational corporations which may help them move beyond an "ethics for (...)

    Global Distributive Justice and the Corporate Duty to Aid.Kevin T. Jackson - 1993 - Journal of Business Ethics 12 (7):547 - 551.
    This article challenges an argument from Tom Donaldson''s recent bookThe Ethics of International Business with a claim that distributive justice, deemed in many circles to impose a duty of mutual aid on individuals and nations, establishes a basis for holding multinational corporations to such a duty as well. The root idea I advocate is that Rawls'' theory of justice can be deployed — beyond its original intent yet in line with its spirit — to underwrite aprima facie obligation of international (...)

    Jurisproudence and the Interpretation of Precepts for International Business.Kevin Thomas Jackson - 1994 - Business Ethics Quarterly 4 (3):291-320.
    Competing schools of contemporary jurisprudence can be “internationalized” to elucidate special problems in interpreting obligations of multinational firms under emergent corporate and international codes. An “integrity” model proves superior to a relativist conception of international business precepts. An integrity jurisprudence provides a coherent vision of a globaI rule-of-law and ethics-of-principle for the world community’s rights correlative to MNC obligations while accomodating the indeterminate and contestable nature of interpretations of such textually-based directives.

    A Cosmopolitan Court for Transnational Corporate Wrongdoing: Why its Time has Come.Kevin T. Jackson - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (7):757-783.
    In the absence of any institution for imposing legal liability on global business, the idea of instituting a cosmopolitan court for international corporate offenses is advocated. The proposal is then critically examined and defended in light of a number of key objections. Having both civil and criminal jurisdiction, such a tribunal could benefit domestic and international legal systems, multinational corporations, and victims of transnational and international corporate misdeeds. By laying down minimal global standards of corporate liability, resolving conflicts between the (...)

    The Polycentric Character of Business Ethics Decisionmaking in International Contexts.Kevin T. Jackson - 2000 - Journal of Business Ethics 23 (1):123 - 143.
    Many ethical issues facing managers of multinational corporations are polycentric problems. That is, they involve a number of distinct centers -- each of which define rights and obligations of a multiplicity of affected parties -- and resolving matters around one center typically creates unpredictable repercussions around one or more of the other centers. Polycentricity is a normative phenomenon especially unsuited for adjudication, often requiring recourse to alternative processes of contract (or reciprocal adjustment) and managerial direction. This study explores how such (...)

    Global Rights and Regional Jurisprudence.Kevin T. Jackson - 1993 - Law and Philosophy 12 (2):157 - 192.
    This article asks whether a “law-as-integrity” approach to human rights adjudication provides a theoretical framework within which to make sense of authoritative regional interpretations of basic human rights for the global community. To focus analysis, I consider U.S. court interpretations of international human rights as an interpretive context. I argue that, with appropriate modification so as to include the world community as a “community of principle” for purposes of human rights adjudication, the law-as-integrity perspective permits disputes surrounding the legality of (...)

    Getting to the Heart of Compassion in Philosophy and Economic Life.Kevin T. Jackson - 2019 - In Ora Setter & László Zsolnai (eds.), Caring Management in the New Economy: Socially Responsible Behaviour Through Spirituality. Springer Verlag. pp. 63-81.
    The paper links philosophical reflection with business-and-society considerations concerning a culture of compassion for economic life. The initial part of the paper explores the philosophical genealogy of the concept of compassion, revealing it as a primordial feature of the human condition, albeit a feature subject to a variety of interpretations. In the analysis, the paper highlights several tensions attending alternative interpretations of the concept of compassion that appear across ancient, medieval, modern, and postmodern treatments in the Western philosophical tradition. The (...)

    Time-Value in Economics.Kevin T. Jackson - 2018 - In Peter Róna & László Zsolnai (eds.), Economic Objects and the Objects of Economics. Springer Verlag. pp. 125-140.
    Modern economics deploys the concept of time-value as if it were a descriptive, empirically-verifiable objective property of the sort studied by natural science in its investigation of the natural world. In particular, economics frames efficiency as a core feature of time-value understood in a purportedly descriptive sense. Economic time-value is stripped of its normative quality, and held up for scientific investigation and brute factual description of the sort associated with criterial and natural-kind concepts. As such, economics deploys the conceptual devices (...)
