We build on Aristotle, Kant, and Mill to introduce criteria of ethical behaviour. These philosophical perspectives provide us with foundations to build a set of questions aimed at carrying out ethical analysis of business behaviours.

Required readings

• D.M. Ruiz: “The Master”.

Questions to prepare: Give an example where you have done something against your self-interest. Inspired by the reading, identify the values that oriented your action.
