The author utilises the hermeneutic approach and emphasises the acceptance of responsibility through dialogue. He demonstrates that the dialogical way of thinking represented by Buber, Levinas, Apel and Habermas constitutes a productive approach to business ethics. By including dialogical conceptions in the ethical discussion about business activity we can hope to reach an insightful, more creative, responsive and responsible praxis of management.
