This book introduces business students, scholars, and practitioners to moral reasoning as it applies naturally in business, choosing the examples and questions to show how you cannot make informed business decisions if you cannot think philosophically. The author identifies, develops, and critically appraises the main approaches in contemporary moral philosophy as they apply to the specific problems that business people confront. The text works through rather than simply "presents" the moral philosophy's relevance to business, thus teaching students how to do moral reasoning as opposed to teaching about moral reasoning.
