Business Ethics as a Science(PDF) reflects how to make the methodology of business ethics more scientific, particularly its normative branch. Storchevoy discovers the attempts of economic theory to contribute to the scientific normative analysis of economic behavior, mainly the welfare economics of 1910-1950 and operational discussions of economics and ethics from 1980-2015. He then studies the development of the methodological structure of business ethics in general since the 1980s and the scientific rationality of normative business ethics, including stakeholder theory, integral social contract theory, corporate social responsibility, the separation thesis, virtue ethics, and other frameworks. He closes by suggesting an extra step to make business ethics a more systematic discipline by developing a typology of moral dilemmas and issues. Business Ethics as a Science: Methodology and Implications will be a stimulating resource for practitioners and students of business ethics and economists alike.
