Summary
  • "This book argues that ethical business behavior can be enhanced by taking fuller account of human nature, particularly with respect to the need for creating relatively small communities within the corporation. These mediating institutions are the natural home for the development of moral virtues. The book argues from naturalist, anthropological, and theological perspectives. Because the central theme is the development of small communities within multinational corporations, individuals have more relative power vis-a-vis the norms that govern them. As a result, business as mediating institution (BMI) also interests with autonomy-based ethical theories."
  • "Ethics and Governance is very multidisciplinary. In analyzing traditional business ethics and legal theory, it draws heavily from philosophy. In addition to this, it integrates biological anthropology, theological naturalism, and legal theory. The book does not reject contemporary business ethics, but instead seeks to strengthen each contemporary theory by providing additional reasons for their efficacy, albeit in a modified form."--Jacket
