Lepulana Ledwaba ★★★★★

Thanks for a compelling book on ethics, well done....

Patrick Mwanza ★★★★★

This is an Excellent book. It puts to task the current form in which business is done and questions even the very foundations of the modern economy. Very illuminating.

Keba Annah Motswedi ★★★★★

This book is very good in the sense that you learn about the behaviour, attitudes, morals, etc of people in organisations as well as communities as a whole. It also helps in dealing with different characters of people in the workplace.

Description

The intention of this book is to serve as a compendium which contributes to a better understanding of major ethical terminology and basic ethical systems orientated towards business ethics. This book is divided into two parts. The first part is theoretical in which survey of main ethical terminology and the most important ethical systems are presented. The second part of this book focuses on applied ethics in which a few cases are analyzed from the position of normative ethics.
