  • The only book of its kind on moral decision-making and business ethics
  • Makes it novel and a significant contribution to the field of business ethics by providing a comprehensive account of casuistry as a method of moral problem solving applied to business
  • Unique comparison of casuistry to classic virtue theory
  • Only text of its genre to explain the advantages and disadvantages of casuistry
  • Facilitates a deeper understanding of some of the pressing problems of the day
Casuistry, Virtue, and Business Ethics brings together three important processes for business ethics: casuistry, virtue ethics, and the business case method. In doing so, it considers the overlap and synergy of casuistry and virtue ethics, the similarities and differences of casuistry and the business case method, and the relationships between emerging and well-established cases. The goal of the book is twofold: to provide a distinctly practical method for moral decision-making within the context of business and to illustrate how contemporary vexing issues are similar to those of the past and how they might be resolved satisfactorily.
