The old joke that business ethics is a contradiction in terms has some truth in it, but in this book Mick Fryer carefully shows us why such confusion is the beginning of wisdom. After all, if ethics was easy, it wouldn't be worth worrying about. So if you want an elegant book about some tough questions, this is the one for you.
Business Ethics teachers have been crying out for an up-to-date textbook that takes moral and political philosophy seriously. Mick Fryer's engaging new book does just that by addressing the everyday ethical language of students and then linking this to the full range of theories. Rather than simply telling students what the theories are and then moving on quickly to 'business case' practical applications, he encourages readers to explore and compare ideas, using case studies and practical ethical scenarios.
I intended to use empirical examples of ethical scenarios while teaching. The book, although an excellent resource, does not provide much examples of empirical work.
This is an easily read publication. It has direct relevance to the module content.
I think that this is an excellent book, and I am very pleased that it is available for students studying on my Business Ethics course. The book presents a useful balance of theory and practical examples, in a very helpful and logical way. The “theory in practice” and “pause for reflection” sections are very well designed, and extremely helpful in highlighting the practical implications of theory. From my initial reading of the book, I think it could be a very useful resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate students - as part of a business ethics and/or management course.
When the opportunity arises, I will be recommending this to my second year undergraduates. The coverage is good. Its language is plain.
Good for undergraduates needing a primer.
Good overview over ethical theory, well connected with business practice
This is one of the best books on Ethics. I recommended it to my students.
Excellent approach to philosophical ethics. Will be recommending that students use this text to develop their understanding of this key area of business ethics.
