About this blog

  • Thinking Ethics was a project launched in Geneva to foster the debate about ethics. A few friends, fed up with only reading about abuses in the media, decided to hold a forward-looking seminar on five subjects: ethics and performance, ethics and knowledge, ethics and consciousness, ethics and disobedience and ethics in real time. If moral has to do with right and wrong, then ethics is its application in society. We believe that people need to talk about the subject to determine the level of ethics they want. The book Thinking Ethics, a result of the seminar, is to start the discussion. This blog is a contribution to the conversation.

Entrepreneurs are supposed to be muscular, unreflective men of action: concerned with agency, control, the reorganisation of brute reality into productive new forms. No time for second-order concerns like ethics. Likewise, B-Schools that devote large parts of their curricula to these 'non-core' disciplines get a reputation for producing functionaries, administrators, technocrats and not chest thumping CEOs. Will we see a gulf opening up between this new class of integrative B-Schools producing the better-rounded new-age business leaders and the old school of temples to capitalism?

Firstly, all entrepreneurs are not men. Second they are not into control (if they are in control they are probably growing too slow). But I take your point about ethics taking a second place during the first phase of a start-up. When you are in survival mode, it is a secondary concern. However, I do think the temples of capitalism are a bit passé (so last millenium), even the Davos Forum is focussing on eradicating poverty.
