Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate the pragmatic function that a foundationalist architecture of moral knowledge may have in managing ethics in an economic context. The role of studying values using a foundational structure is to make the values that are basic for some members to become derivative for the rest of the members or at least to be constantly considered as relevant criteria in decision-making processes. The Ethical Delphi is proposed as an efficient tool for homogenizing values that cannot otherwise be asserted. Hence, those values could not be formalized in standard tools for managing ethics.
