This week we interview John Hooker. John Hooker is Professor of Operations Research and Holleran Professor of Business Ethics and Social Responsibility at Carnegie Mellon University. His book, Taking Ethics Seriously: Why Ethics Is an Essential Tool for the Modern Workplace, develops an intellectual framework for analyzing ethical dilemmas that is both grounded in theory and versatile enough to deal rigorously with real-world issues.

We discuss:

  • What does the term 'ethics' truly mean?
  • How did John become so dedicated around teaching ethics and social responsibility?
  • What is the downside of not taking ethics seriously?
  • How can we come to an agreement around ethics that works for an entire culture?
