What role do Aristotle's four transcendent virtues - truth, beauty, goodness, and unity - play in the workplace? In this program, Tom Morris argues that Aristotle's virtues must be present in our modern business environment if real excellence is to flourish, and shows how we can avert a spiritual crisis in our business lives by looking to the wisdom of the ancient philosophers. As one example, he claims that when management keeps secrets and is less than honest with employees, the morale of the company is damaged. He also asserts that employees must be made to feel that there is an inherent goodness in the business being conducted, if they are going to make their best contribution to the effort. Furthermore, Morris feels that the aesthetics of a workplace need to be accounted for because this enriches the soul and brings out the best in people. Insightful, intriguing, and thought provoking, If Aristotle Ran General Motors is a compelling and persuasive line of reasoning for a new spirit of openness and humanity in the workplace.
