Abstract

Arthur Richs zweibaendiges Meisterwerk Wirtschaftsethik (1984/1990) wird im Kontext der internationalen Entwicklung der Wirtschaftsethik seit den achtziger Jahren gewuerdigt. Nach einer kurzen UEbersicht der internationalen Entwicklung werden acht besonders wichtige Aspekte von Richs Werk fuer die Grundlegung der Wirtschaftsethik und fuer eine human-reformierte und oekologisch-regulierte Marktwirtschaft aufgezeigt. (Arthur Rich’s fundamental and unique masterpiece ‘Business and Economic Ethics. The Ethics of Economic Systems’ (published in German in 1984/1990; in English in 2006) is discussed against the backdrop of the international development of business and economic ethics since the 1980s. A great number of important insights are still relevant for the foundation of business and economic ethics and the development of a humanly reformed and ecologically regulated market economy: the contribution of Christian theology to the ethical dialogue in a pluralistic society; Rich’s ethical reasoning that defies ethical relativism and skepticism; Rich’s “hermeneutic circle” of economic rationality and ethical reasoning; the distinction of economic systems and economic orders and the variety of market economies; the indispensable ecological dimension of any market economy; basic conditions for a participative cooperation in a global economy, etc. )
