Overview

The late Patrick Primeaux, a past editor of this series, was an outstanding teacher of business ethics and a longtime chair of the Theology Department at St. John's University in New York City. Patrick, through his teachings, research articles and books, had a profound influence on how many contemporary business ethicists both teach and think about business ethics.

Some contributions in this volume are from his colleagues and reflect his influence as both a business ethics teacher and as a scholar. Others are the result of a conference held in June 2011 at the University of Tasmania by the Australian Association for Professional & Applied Ethics. These contributions too reflect Patrick's influence and also argue themes which Patrick would have fully endorsed. Patrick often spoke about visiting Australia. He never did. He would though have enjoyed discovering such like minded people at the very end of what he often described as an intimidatingly lengthy air flight.
