Editorial Reviews

Edwin Hartman
Jeffery Smith brings together some of the field's rising stars and ably highlights the points they have to make about the importance of normative theory. There are a lot of people in business ethics who really need to read this book.
John R. Boatright
This important collection of original essays by a new generation of business ethics scholars offers a variety of perspectives on the possibilities and the limitations of ethical theory in business ethics teaching and research. As business ethics has become more interdisciplinary and practice-focused, the role of ethical theory in the field has been both challenged and transformed. So the publication of these essays comes at an opportune time for a fresh assessment of old developments and new directions for ethical theory in business ethics.
Kenneth E. Goodpaster
Jeff Smith has done the field of business ethics a great service by collecting these provocative and foundational essays in one volume. It is a wonderful collection of fresh voices on the normative foundations of business ethics. These are significant contributions to the literature that truly add value.
