Sample text

Any moral theory that depicts it as evil is guaranteed to evoke hypocrisy among its exponents and contempt among its onlookers, since nobody can persistently resist the lure of pleasure (1172a34-b9) [13]. 1 Aristotelian Business Ethics: Core Concepts and Theoretical Foundations 13 Ascetic and puritan critiques of capitalist consumerism have no place in an Aristotelian business ethics. But the acknowledgment of pleasure as an ineluctable motive of individual action does not mean that it should define self-fulfillment.

One can know it to be true by merely intuiting it (1140b31-1141a8) [13], in this case by reflecting 1 Aristotelian Business Ethics: Core Concepts and Theoretical Foundations 7 upon the nature of human choice. The upshot of all this is that whether an individual ought to do X, rather than Y or Z, properly applies to the means of realizing human fulfillment as opposed to that end itself. Instead of being derived from is, the ought is found to be imbedded in the decision-making context of human affairs.

In this, the introductory chapter to the Aristotle section of the handbook, we will focus closely on the Nicomachean Ethics [13] with a view to articulating the theoretical foundations and core concepts of the Aristotelian approach to business ethics. Other works in Aristotle’s corpus, The Politics [14, 15] chief among them, will also be consulted when necessary to shed light upon issues arising in his major ethical work. Our account will start by describing the primacy of personal happiness, or human flourishing, as the goal by which proper conduct in the business world should be defined.
