"MacIntyre and Business Ethics"

by Beabout, Gregory R (2020)

Key Passage

MacIntyre sometimes expresses a sort of concern for those who find themselves trapped in a life of self-alienation in which conflicting roles—as professional, citizen, parent, and so on—are compartmentalized, such that one’s life lacks narrative unity. Armed only with measurable metrics, especially money and profits, the manager’s quest for efficiency and effectiveness unwittingly becomes part of a large-scale, impersonal system that destroys small-scale communities of virtue. (p.219)
