MacIntyre's Influence on Business Ethics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Business Ethics scholars have made much use of Alasdair MacIntyre’s distinctive account of the virtues. This chapter discusses MacIntyre’s influence and considers four distinctive types of enquiry inspired by his seminal 1981 text After Virtue. These comprise: (i) the moral status of the manager (ii) the application of MacIntyre’s notion of practice in business (iii) the relationship between practices and institutions (iv) empirical enquiry using MacIntyre’s ‘goods-virtues-practices-institutions’ framework The remaining chapters in this section exemplify these enquiries.
