Chapter 4: Innovative methodology: an experimental approach to ethics

Christoph Luetge and Matthias Uhl


Chapter 4 by Christoph Luetge and Matthias Uhl focuses on an innovative methodology, that is, on an experimental approach to ethics. The contributions of experimental disciplines are particularly important if business ethics is to be understood as an interdisciplinary field that includes not only a normative-ethical but also a descriptive-explicative dimension. After a brief summary of experimental philosophy and experimental ethics with its philosophical precursors, the chapter explores future opportunities and key research questions facing experimental ethics. Drawing on recent ethical experiments, it discusses practical implications and possible types of criticisms.
