The Oxford Handbook of Business Ethics provides a comprehensive treatment of the field of business ethics as seen from a philosophical approach. Business ethics raises many important philosophical issues. A first set of issues concerns the methodology of business ethics. What is the role of ethical theory in business ethics? To what extent, if at all, can thinking in business ethics be enhanced by philosophy, so as to provide real moral guidance? Another set of issues involves questions regarding markets, capitalism, and economic justice. There are related concerns about the nature of business organizations and the responsibilities they have to their members, owners, and society. This Handbook consists of twenty-four articles that survey the field of business ethics, covering all major topics about the relationship between ethical theory and business ethics. The articles are written by philosophers who offer a systematic interpretation of their topics and discuss various moral controversies and dilemmas that plague business relationships and government-business relationships.
