Reviews - What do customers think about On Moral Business: Classical and Contemporary Resources for Ethics in Economic Life?

A Wealth of Resources  Jul 20, 2007
Many textbooks are very expensive now, and "On Moral Business" has the virtue of giving the reader a lot for the money. Looking critically at the issues of business ethics from multiple perspectives (including some limited perspectives on Hinduism, Islam, and Buddhism, as well as Chrisitanity and Judaism), "On Moral Business' provides a great deal of insight from classic critical observers such as Aristotle, Karl Marx, Adam Smith, Max Weber, Reinhold Niebuhr, Walter Rauschenbusch, in addition to good excerpts of Catholic social thought on the morality of business, as well as Protestant Church documents. Anyone wishing to acquire a comprehensive reader on economic issues from a both a religious and a secular philosophical disposition would be advised that this book is well worth the money. As with all extensive readers, some articles and excerpts are more valuable than others, but a careful reading should produce a wealth of ideas to develop.
Complete Philosophical Theological Guide to Business Issues  Apr 7, 2000
This is a complete and thorough book accumulating the best philosophical and theological essays and monograms written about ethics in society and the workplace. The book takes on many points of view and schools of thought. The idea is not to judge the thoughts raised but simply to present the best thoughts of human nature on complex ethical issues.
