Week 2 Notes -‐ Business, Ethics, and Society 09/13/16 _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Why a Business Ethics Class at DePaul? -‐ Focus on the poor therefore focus on the material -‐ Economic Concerns gain focus through a concern for the poor -‐ This occurs because the spiritual has a relationship to the world – IT MATTERS Religion Mind/Right Belief Mind/Body -‐ Vincent Belief/Action Max Weber Views -‐ Charismatic Leader vs. Bureaucratic/legal leadership o Charismatic Leaders § A person who thinks certain rules and idealistic notions should be obeyed and those who look up to that person will follow those notions. • Ex. Your grandmother had traditions for 60 years and everyone in the family followed. She is the Charismatic Leader but when she passes away, will those traditions still be followed? Will everything stay the same? Not necessarily because as time changes, leaders and traditions changes. Article about Vincent DePaul says: -‐ There is a problem existing into translating life from a Charismatic Leadership to a Bureaucratic Leadership -‐ Integrating Religious views does not mean a direct translation of religious views/laws into practice -‐ Looking at holy scriptures shows laws, goals, ideals, and virtues -‐ Looking at contradictory texts suggest modern problems, mixed translation of text, sexism and racism. What is business Ethics? -‐ The study of morality -‐ Descriptive Ethics o Show a culture develop and abides by morality -‐ Normative Ethics o What do we do? § We have to look at ourselves and we look at what we do when it comes to major issue. What is Morality? -‐ Interaction with our core assumptions o Are you living up to a law or assumption of the world that makes you a moral person? § Ex. How do we know what morality unless we know things about our self such as If my morality is based on the morality of Kanye West or Gandhi, that means you are trying to live up to that person. Just like if you were to live up to god. § Ex. Welfare Policies – 1 assumption: People are greety and want to get as much from the gov. without working 2 assumption: People who believe that working is key and you don’t like to take from other people. Types of claims in regards to Morality and their core assumptions: 1) Empirical Claim a. A descriptive claim about the world that can be proven or disproven by verifying it through science 2) Metaphysical Claim a. Can be disproven by measurement and is important about how we think about the world Ex. Saying there is a god by attempting to prove and disprove this view because they simply believe in it. 3) Conceptual Claim a. All based on your opinion of peoples morality 4) Value Claim a. “What should we do” b. “Who should we be”
