How to Teach Ethics to Business People

A full semester survey of business ethics permits an instructor to cover both ethical theory as well as its application to a range of topics. But what if an instructor had only a week or even just an afternoon? What focus would have the best outcome in terms of ethical behavior? Should the focus be framed by Analytic philosophy or should the philosophy be “dialed down” for such an audience? I believe the focus in such circumstances (and the heart of any business ethics course) should be a philosophical analysis of the rationalizations that seduce business people into ignoring the elements of their consciences that originate outside of the business world. In this talk, I will defend the focus on rationalizations in business ethics instruction as well as share insights into the weaknesses of several influential rationalizations in business.
