"Hartman's book is a significant and welcome addition to the business ethics lexicon. [. . .] If philosophers are to continue to play a role in the business ethics dialogue, this is the kind of book a philosopher should be writing. It will be a rich and rewarding experience for those who read it and a useful text in a business ethics class."--Business Ethics Quarterly
"Ed Hartman's Organizational Ethics and the Good Life is one of the very best books yet written on business ethics. Drawing from a rich background in both management and philosophy Hartman paints us a picture of community, morality and culture in corporate life that is thoughtful, insightful and witty. This book is much recommended."--Robert C. Solomon, Department of Philosophy, University of Texas at Austin
"Organizational Ethics and the Good Life cleans the philosophic house of business ethics and offers a fresh new way of thinking about organizational life. Hartman presents one of the best critiques of ethical theory since MacIntyre's After Virtue. The book is philosophically important because Hartman manages to work through and then obliterate the line between applied and theoretical ethics. This book offers a unique and pragmatic twist on Aristotelian and communitarian theory that holds great promise for organizational life."--Joanne B. Ciulla, Chair in Leadership and Ethics, Jepson School of Leadership Studies, University if Richmond.
"This is a philosophically literate and managerially provocative treatise on organizational ethics....Hartman collects and contributes to an impressive array of reflection on both ethical theory and and the conceptual anatomy of applied ethics. This kind of comprehensive philosophical thought, anchored in an understanding of organizations and management, is much needed in graduate-level applied ethics education."--Ethics
"[I]t is insightful both as an introduction to ethics and as an approach to business ethics."--Religious Studies Review
