Abstract

The founding proposition of this book is that virtue ethics theory has the potential to create and sustain ‘good’ enterprises. That potential has yet to be fully realised. A common concern for the maintenance of the virtuous purpose within organisations unites the contributions in this volume, bringing together theoretical explorations of the role of virtue in collective human endeavour with a concern for the executive role of managers.
