Abstract

This short article comments on an article in the previous issue of Business Ethics Quarterly by Heath, Moriarty, and Norman entitled “Business Ethics and (or as) Political Philosophy.” It suggests that there are reasons to pause before absorbing business ethics into political theory, despite the fact that corporations do appear at times to be political entities.
