Business Ethics As Practice: Representation, Discourse and Performance

Business Ethics As Practice: Representation, Discourse and Performance


This book shows that in business, moral questions are not just theoretical; they arise in practice and have to be dealt with in practice. It illustrates that 'ethics as practice' is an important area of study because it focuses on how ethics are enacted and embedded in everyday organizational reality. In contrast to the approaches dominating mainstream literature, the authors of this thought provoking volume focus on the tensions, paradoxes and ambiguities that underpin ethics in practice. Recent corporate scandals such as those involving Enron, Worldcom and Parmalat have brought to the fore a problem which mainstream economics and management studies have long ignored: the fact that neither rules, regulations, nor the laws of the market can ensure ethical behaviour.
