    The ethos of business students.Jelle Baardewijk & Gjalt Graaf - 2020 - Business Ethics: A European Review 30 (2):188-201.
    Business schools are the “nurseries” of the corporate world. This article offers an empirical analysis of the business student ethos on the basis of research conducted at three Dutch universities. A theoretical framework in the tradition of virtue ethics and dubbed “moral ethology” is used to identify the values business schools convey to their students. The central research question is: What types of ethos do Dutch business students have?

    Veterinarians’ Discourses on Animals and Clients.Gjalt de Graaf - 2005 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 18 (6):557-578.

    Tractable Morality.Gjalt De Graaf - 2005 - Journal of Business Ethics 60 (1):1 - 15.

    Discourse Theory and Business Ethics. The Case of Bankers' Conceptualizations of Customers.Gjalt De Graaf - 2001 - Journal of Business Ethics 31 (4):299 - 319.
    Within discourse theory, language is seen as constitutive of reality. Furthermore, facts and values are viewed as inseparable. This has consequences for business ethics. In this paper the relationship between discourse theory and business ethics is discussed. Both the descriptive and prescriptive aspects of business ethics are taken into account. Furthermore, an example of an empirical study is presented. A discourse analysis is concluded to answer the questions of how bankers in Holland conceptualize and thus treat their customers and whether (...)
