The Corporation as Moral Entity
This chapter addresses the question of whether the notion of integrity is applicable to organizations and whether an organization can be viewed as an autonomous entity. It analyzes three positions on the localization of the moral responsibility of corporate activities: the amoral model, the functional model, and the autonomy model. The chapter concludes by discussing the disaster of the Herald of Free Enterprise to illustrate the autonomy of model organizations.
