Summary
"In his seminal thesis on virtue ethics, MacIntyre provided us with a diagnosis on the modern condition and made us aware of what we have lost as a society. For MacIntyre that loss means that modern working practices are highly susceptible to being corrupted especially when an institution places money, status or power above the goods of excellence. This book includes empirical material that supports what MacIntyre and now others are saying in theory and as such has the potential to catch a very powerful wave of questioning not just the changes to the public sector but the lifestyle and financial crisis that we have all bought into being. The considerable practical potential of these insights is explored in the case study that runs through the book. The final chapter contains a detailed application of the findings to a leadership education programme along with a very postitive evaluation."--BOOK JACKET
