Roots of Ethics

 Think about your professional life and the ethics and values that guide your (and your organization’s) behavior and decision-making processes. Discuss the following in your assignment:

  • What value is knowledge about the genesis and history of current-day business ethics?
  • In other words, in the arena of ethics, does history matter?
  • Should it matter to organizations as much, and in the same way, as to individuals?
  • Why study the history of ethics and ethical thought?
  • What does this historical context have to do with the present?
  • How does knowledge of the past help people better understand and prepare for future ethical decisions that will challenge them?

Graded on:

  • That you grasp the overall concept 
  • That you are able to apply that knowledge in a thoughtful and meaningful way
  • That your arguments are coherent and defensible
