PHIL 164.001 – Morality and Business
Instructor: Nevin Johnson. This course meets TR 3:30 – 4:45 p.m. in PE 3018.
This course will examine a variety of ethical issues related to the conduct of business from the perspectives of the consumer, the corporation, and “the system.” Likely issues to be discussed will include:
- whether businesses have duties to do things other than maximize their own profit, consistent with the law
- issues related to executive compensation (are there moral limits to how much CEOs should be paid?)
- whether consumers have ethical duties when it comes to their consumption behavior
- whether there are moral limits to markets (i.e., whether “some things should not be for sale”)
- other ethical issues that arise in the context of globalization.
