This book illustrates the application of ethical thinking to business, management and computing. The authors are not professional philosophers but lecturers, researchers and practitioners based at Liverpool Hope University (LHU) and other international institutes, who have a particular approach that will appeal to pedagogic and scholarly interests as well as to more general readers. Some of the authors are faculty colleagues at LHU, others are directly or indirectly connected with it through teaching and/or research cooperation. At LHU the ethical dimension runs through every aspect of its corporate life; it is embodied in its corporate mission statement that gives its teaching and research a special flavour, touching other people's lives and professional practice. This book brings together some significant areas of leading edge research and scholarship in the context of engagement with communities of practice, locally, regionally and professionally, with international students, police, teachers, housing managers, ambulance workers, etc. Most of the chapters are based on the practical experience of the contributors but written in an accessible way. There is a strong intercultural and transnational flavour in this book. It is explicitly cross-disciplinary, and will appeal to readers from areas like organization analysis, computer studies and information systems as well as philosophy and ethics.
