Ethics in business is a major topic both in the social sciences and in business itself. Anthropologists, long attendant to the intersection of ethics and practice, are particularly well suited to offer vital insights on the subject. This timely collection considers a range of ethical issues in business through the examination of anthropologically informed theory and case examples. The meaning of ethical values, practices, and education are explored, as well as practical ways of implementing them, while the specific ethical challenges of industries such as advertising, market research, and design are considered. Contributions from anthropologists in business and academia promise a broad range of perspectives and add to the growing discussion on the ways anthropologists study, work, teach, and engage in a variety of industry settings. Engagingly written, Ethics in the Anthropology of Business will be of interest to a wide variety of audiences, including practicing anthropologists, current and future business leaders, and scholars and students from a range of social sciences.
Anthropologist practitioners work outside the confines of the university, putting their knowledge and skills to work on significant problems in a wide variety of different contexts. The demand for anthropologist practitioners is strong and growing; practice is in many ways the leading edge of anthropology today, and one of the most exciting aspects of the discipline. How can anthropology students prepare themselves to become practitioners? Specifically designed to help students, including those in more traditional training programs, prepare for a career in putting anthropology to work in the world, the book: - provides an introduction to the discipline of anthropology and an exploration of its role and contribution in today’s world; - outlines the shape of anthropological practice – what it is, how it developed historically, and what it looks like today; - describes how students of anthropology can prepare for a career in practice, with emphasis on the relationship between theory, method, and application; - includes short contributions from practitioners, writing on specific aspects of training, practice, and career planning; - sets out a framework for career planning, with specific and detailed discussions of finding and securing employment; - reviews some of the more salient challenges arising in the course of a practitioner career; and - concludes with a discussion of what the future of anthropological practice is likely to be. Using Anthropology in the World is essential reading for students interested in preparing themselves for the challenges and rewards of practice and application.
This book argues that ‘ethnographic thinking’—the thought processes and patterns ethnographers develop through their practice—offers companies and organizations the cultural insights they need to develop fully-informed strategies. Using real world examples, Hasbrouck demonstrates how shifting the value of ethnography from simply identifying consumer needs to driving a more holistic understanding of a company or organization can help it benefit from a deeper understanding of the dynamic and interactive cultural contexts of its offerings. In doing so, he argues that such an approach can also enhance the strategic value of their work by helping them increase appreciation for openness and exploration, hone interpretive skills, and cultivate holistic thinking, in order to broaden perspectives, challenge assumptions, and cross-pollinate ideas between differing viewpoints. Ethnographic Thinking is key reading for managers and strategists specifically wishing to tap-into the potential that ethnography offers, as well as those searching more broadly for new ways to innovate practice. It is essential reading for students of applied ethnography, and recommended for scholars too.
Diese Einführung in das junge Feld der transkulturellen Politischen Theorie richtet sich an Studierende und Lehrende der Politikwissenschaft und insbesondere der Politischen Theorie. Dabei werden in prinzipiell voneinander unabhängigen, aber aufeinander verweisenden Kapiteln spezifische Fragestellungen des Feldes anhand von Ausgangsproblemen erarbeitet. Da transkulturell orientierte Politische Theorie oftmals mit naiven Annahmen konfrontiert ist, die es zu differenzieren und relativieren gilt, wird genau das zum didaktischen Prinzip erhoben: Am Anfang jedes Kapitels wird eine intuitiv scheinbar richtige Ausgangsbehauptung thematisiert, die im Verlauf des Kapitels hinterfragt wird.
Die vielfältigen Transformationsprozesse im Zuge der Globalisierung stellen herkömmliche politische, gesellschaftliche und kulturelle Grenzen zunehmend in Frage. Die erhöhte Mobilität von Menschen, Kapital, Gütern, Bildern und Informationen und die durch Telekommunikationstechnologien ermöglichte dichte Vernetzung von Individuen und Organisationen über nationalstaatliche Grenzen hinweg lassen die Globalisierung als Epoche der Grenzüberschreitungen erscheinen. Damit wird jedoch keine entgrenzte Weltgesellschaft eingeläutet; eher gehen die Veränderungen althergebrachter Grenzen mit neuen Grenzziehungen und der Verschiebung ihrer Bedeutung einher. Die Publikation widmet sich dem Spannungsfeld zwischen Grenzüberschreitungen und Grenzverschiebungen in einer globalisierten Welt, das seit einigen Jahren ins Zentrum des Interesses vieler Disziplinen gerückt ist, und dabei die Chancen und Risiken, die diese Prozesse bergen, problematisieren. Im Mittelpunkt stehen Fragen der Toleranz, Religion, Rechtsstaatlichkeit, Migration, Staatsbürgerschaft sowie der Transformation von familiären Bindungen sowie individuellen und kollektiven Identitäten und deren Auswirkungen auf die Herstellung von Solidarität und Ausschluss. Besondere Beachtung wird dem aussereuropäischen Kontext und der Geschlechterperspektive geschenkt. Es wird angestrebt, diese komplexen und hochaktuellen Fragen aus der Sicht der verschiedenen Sozial- und Geisteswissenschaften sowie der Rechtswissenschaft zu erhellen.
The purpose of this book is to develop those ethical traditions. For example, Horkheimer's books Eclipse of Reason and Critique of Instrumental Reason, and his early and now classic essay Materialism and Morality ask for a reformation of Kantian ethics. The reform sought is that categorical imperative in an individualism capitalism serves to worsen the difference between business ethics and moral philosophy. That is, it is not enough to try to be good or ethical as individuals when it is the systemic processes that must be dealt with. Therefore, Horkheimer asks that the maxim that would be made universal be done at the level of people organizing with others to change the social system that is producing the unethical behaviors. The book is organized into several sections. The first section sets the stages, beginning with a challenge to the field of social responsibility in business and public administration (Jones, Ten bos, & Parker have a new book out that is smashing). Then, we turn to Carr and to Zanettic who each have done critical theory work in public administration. This is followed by Heather Hopfl, who edited an issue on ethics of goodness, and does the kind of writing that makes deep connections. The next set of chapters make topic connections: rhizomatics, dialogics of co experience, story/narrative, and postmodern. The third set of topics focus on application: technofuturist, international business, economics, university, environment, accounting, spirituality, strategy, and ending with Mills' work on silence of race/ethnicity in business (and public administration) ethics writing.
