The author develops, defends, and applies a metaphysical theory of corporate person hood and draws distinctions between collective and corporate responsibility. French also provides a concept of the moral states of corporations that has profound, ethical, social and legal consequences, and argues that instead of relying on traditional moral theories to evaluate corporate managers, those principles should be applied to the corporations themselves, as a full-fledged person.
