Abstract

Die deutsche Wirtschaftsethikdebatte unterscheidet sich wesentlich von der Debatte im anglo-amerikanischen Sprachraum. Dies nicht zuletzt deshalb, da in der Tradition der Sozialen Marktwirtschaft die Umsetzung sozialer Anliegen vor allem als Aufgabe staatlicher Lenkungspolitik und nicht als Verantwortungsbereich der Unternehmen gesehen wurde. Entsprechend spaet wurde daher in Deutschland die Einbindung ethischer Lehrinhalte in die wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Curricula thematisiert. Der vorliegende Beitrag versucht eine Bestandsaufnahme der aktuellen Entwicklung. (The German business ethics discussion differs fundamentally from the English debate. One reason for the difference lies in the specific political perspective of social responsibility. In the tradition of German Social Market Economy social efforts widely have been seen rather as a function of governmental social policy than as a specific task of corporations. This might explain why business ethics for long time was not seen as a topic of business education. Due to various reasons the situation has changed. Nevertheless, business ethics in German economic faculties is taught rarely and in most cases is not part of the core curriculum. The following article wants to map the territory and to provide an overview of the actual situation.)
