This lecture was made possible by a prestigious and highly competitive National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Connections planning grant, awarded to Dr. Abe Zakhem (Philosophy) and Dr. Elizabeth McCrea (Department of Management). The NEH grant is supporting the "Business Humanities Initiative" at Seton Hall University. This initiative seeks to integrate the humanities and business in order to develop innovative courses and curriculum and better illuminate, inform, and help to passionately try to resolve persistent and emerging ethical issues in business and society.
