AbstractThe author advocates for the inclusion of discussions of central issues in classical philosophy in applied ethics courses. he argues that the current,widely-used approach of discussing traditional ethical theories as an introduction to and foundation for such courses. Instead, he argues that including discussions of classical philosophy helps students develop a kind of ethical thinking which is not to be identified exclusively with ethical "decision-making". Though this kind of teaching is relevant to all professional ethics courses, this article focuses specifically on the area of business ethics.
