Abstract

The paper completes a trilogy of papers under the title:"A Quasi-Personal Alternative to Some Anglo-American Pluralist Models of Organisations".The first two are published in Philosophy of Management Volumes 10.3 and I,2.This last argues that three dominant Anglo-American organisational theories which see them selves as "business ethics-friendly"are less so than they seem.It is argued that they present obstacles to collective moral agency. They are:the dominant "soft-pluralist" organisational theory of L.Bolman and T.Deal called "Refaming"; the Stakeholder Management Theory of R.Edward Freeman;; and the Integerated Social Contract Theory of T. Donaldson and T. Dunphee.
