This is the fifth book by Professor Alan E. Singer on business ethics and strategy. This book emphasizes aspects that are thought to be most likely to rise to prominence in the years to come. These include ecological-understandings at the conceptual level and the participation at the practical level in a distributed system of global governance system that strives to uphold all of the human goods, including the positive and negative freedoms, but in a reasonably balanced way.

In a section on justice and politics, several issues related to social and environmental justice are duly viewed from both a theoretical perspective and from a corporate (strategic) perspective. A further section focuses upon the governance and ethical implications of what James Martin (founder of the “21st Century School” at the University of Oxford) has called the “technologies of sorcery”: synthetic biology, nanotechnology, robotics and artificial general intelligence. The final section of the book applies a stable organizing framework to the teaching of ethics in business and politics. This book will be of interest to students and practitioners across a wide spectrum of academic subjects and professions. (Imprint: Nova)
