  5. The Good Auditor – Skeptic or Wealth Accumulator? Ethical Lessons Learned From the Arthur Andersen Debacle.Ronald Duska - 2005 - Journal of Business Ethics 57 (1):17 - 29.
    The paper begins with an example of the accounting treatment afforded an Indefeasible Rights Use (IRU) Swap by Global Crossing. The case presents a typical example of ways in which accounting firms contributed to the ethical scandals of the early 21st century. While the behavior of Arthur Andersen, the accounting company in the case, might have met the letter of the law, we argue that it violated the spirit of the law, which can be discovered by looking at (1) the (...)

    Aristotle: A Pre-Modern Post-Modern? Implications for Business Ethics.Ronald F. Duska - 1993 - Business Ethics Quarterly 3 (3):227-249.
    The paper asserts that the post-modern rejection of “modern” theoretical accounts including ethical-theoretical accounts as unacceptable meta-narratives would concur with an Aristotelian critique of contemporary ethical theories. Hence and Aristotelian critique will be similar to a post-modern critique. The paper sketches an account of what post-modernism in philosophy is and shows its similarity to Aristoteleanism in rejecting “modern” approaches in a significant way since an Aristotelian approach uses different criteria for what counts as ethical knowledge. The paper suggests that if (...)

    What Is the Purpose of Business Ethics? In Advance.Ronald F. Duska - 2014 - Business Ethics Quarterly 24 (1):119-134.
    If the ultimate purpose of ethical argument is to persuade people to act a certain way, the point of doing business ethics is to persuade others about what constitutes proper ethical behavior. Given that teleological perspective, the role of the business ethicist is to be an orator or rhetorician. Further, since one cannot expect more certitude than the subject warrants, from Aristotle’s perspective, while rhetoric is the most persuasive means of arguing, it is not scientific demonstration. Rhetoric uses examples and (...)

    The Why's of Business Revisited.Ronald F. Duska - 1997 - Journal of Business Ethics 16 (12-13):1401-1409.
    One can determine the nature of something by asking what it is for. For example one understands what a chair is when one understands it is for sitting on. This involves understanding its purpose. One type of corporation is the for-profit-corporation. This seems to indicate that this type of corporation, the business corporation, has as its purpose to make a profit. Is that as obvious as it first appears? The favorite way for philosophers to arrive at the "purpose" of anything (...)

  11. Business Ethics: Oxymoron or Good Business?Ronald Duska - 2000 - Business Ethics Quarterly 10 (1):111-129.
    Given that so many people think business ethics is oxymoronic, it might be prudent to investigate why and to determine what if any truth or partial truth they see. Thus, as a hueristic device, I propose to seriously examine the claim that business ethics is a contradiction in terms, and see what follows if business ethics is oxymoronic.

    What's the Point of a Business Ethics Course?Ronald F. Duska - 1991 - Business Ethics Quarterly 1 (4):335-354.
    The paper argues that the point of a business ethics course is to improve behavior in business, and that an essential ingredient in thatimproved behavior is knowing what's right or wrong. To make that claim, the paper attempts to dispose of three arguments which support the contrary claim, that business ethics courses are useless. First, it is argued that morals can't be taught, since they only result from training. Second, it is argued that such courses are unnecessary because business executives (...)

    The Ethical Dilemma of Research and Development Openness Versus Secrecy.Steve McMillan, Ronald Duska, Robert Hamilton & Debra Casey - 2006 - Journal of Business Ethics 65 (3):279-285.
    In previous research, we have argued that private companies should be more open with their scientific research findings. However, our research assumed, somewhat naively perhaps, that public institutions were quite open. Recent findings have suggested otherwise, and in this paper we explore the dilemma faced by industry, universities, and society in attempting to balance the needs of openness (to rapidly advance the body of knowledge), with secrecy (to protect the economic returns to a new innovation).

    Aquinas’s Definition of Good: Ethical-Theoretical Notes On De Veritate, Q. 21.Ronald Duska - 1974 - The Monist 58 (1):151-162.
    It is a rather remarkable fact that in most discussions of Aquinas’s ethics, Q. 21 of the De Veritate which deals with Aquinas’s notion of Good, is almost entirely overlooked. For example D. J. O’Connor’s book Aquinas and Natural Law refers only once to the De Veritate and that is not a reference to Q. 21. Even the massive work of Gilson, The Christian Philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas, in the entire third section which deals with Aquinas’s moral theory has (...)
