    Ausgehend von einem reflexiv vertieften Begriff des Arguments werden drei Grundlagenprobleme der Unternehmensethik beleuchtet: (1) Das Verhaeltnis von Theorie und Praxis, welches hier auf einen pragmatisch erneuerten Handlungsbegriff gestellt wird; (2) die Bedeutung der CSR fuer die Wirtschaftsethik, die eher skeptisch eingeschaetzt wird; (3) die Moeglichkeit, den „Frieden“ als das oberste Ziel ethisch bewussten Wirtschaftens anzusetzen – wie es Horst Steinmann seit Jahrzehnten fordert. (Starting from a philosophically revised concept of argument an attempt is made to contribute to the theoretical foundations of business ethics. Three problems are treated: (1) The relationship between theory and praxis – which is here sketched in the manner of the New Pragmatism; (2) The value-level of the business process with special attention to the concept of “Corporate Social Responsibility”; (3) The concept of “peace” being the starting point of justification in business ethics – as it was established by Horst Steinmann.)
