The aim of this article is to identify the adequacy of the postmodern view of knowledge and values to produce tools of ethics management in economic organizations. It is questioned the possibility to conceive business ethics as a postmodern phenomenon. And, keeping this in mind, postmodernism and objectivism are comparatively analysed as complementary manners to epistemologically sustain ethics management. Narrative ethics is eventually considered an important postmodern contribution for obtaining relevant instruments of business ethics, but the stability of this construction is not in agreement with the postmodern spirit.
