Business ethics founded on christian moral theology: Perspectives for the 21st century
AbstractReligion influences the world of business through its influence on people's moral conscience and motivation, so it would be unrealistic not to take it into account. Theology does not see itself as being opposed to philosophy but, rather, as building on it. Through its rational and systematic justification of faith, theology opens up new horizons for business ethics. Furthermore, if public debate requires the contribution of acknowledged authorities on moral issues, then there is clearly a place for moral theology in a multicultural and plurireligious society. All of this suggests the need to further develop business ethics from a theological point of view.
