Corporate character, corporate virtues.

Moore, G. (2015) 'Corporate character, corporate virtues.', Business ethics : a European review., 24 (S2). S99-S114.


This paper extends previous discussions of corporate character and corporate virtues. By drawing particularly on the work of Alasdair MacIntyre, it offers a perspective on context-dependent categories of the virtues. It then provides a philosophically grounded framework which enables a discussion of which virtues are required for business organizations to qualify as virtuous. It offers a preliminary taxonomy of such corporate virtues and provides a revised definition of corporate character.
