Studies from a variety of theoretical perspectives confirm that work organizations affect the development of employees’ moral agency. But how, and in what direction? Rival answers to these and related questions by theorists include those who extol the bourgeois virtues required by market orders and those who regard business organizations as corrosive of the virtues. Empirical research into virtues in organizations has done little to resolve the issue. This chapter illustrates the dimensions of these disputes and attempts to diagnose their cause. The author argues that rival accounts of the impact of business on moral agency presuppose radically different views of those individual, public and common goods to whose achievement the virtues must be directed.
