Business Ethics. Think about an experience in which a person (either yourself or someone you know) did something that in retrospect, they wish they hadn’t but were able to rationalize unethical conduct at the time. Explain the situation. How did the person rationalize the decision at the time? What do you think they would do if they had it to do over again?
How might thinking about moral intent help you overcome the instinct we all have to rationalize unethical conduct when faced with an ethical dilemma in the future?
Also, how would Aristotle explain this in terms of his concept of “character” in his virtue ethics (Section 2.1)? How might you apply moral intent and virtue ethics to ethical decision-making at work in the future? [MO 5.4]
Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite in-line.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
