In this essai I address the subject of organization and ethics. In contrast to both the Kantian legislative tradition, and the idea of organizational virtue, both of which are predominant within contemporary accounts of business ethics, I argue for an ethics of organization based on the principles of recognition. Such an ethics would be both intersubjective and embodied, sensitive to what Diprose (2002) has described as corporeal generosity. In doing so, I lay claim to a set of ontologically a priori conditions in order to provide an alternative ethical foundation for modes of organizing, as well as a retort to more mundane assumptions about the ethical character of organizational life.
