History is full of paradigm shifts—those moments when one conceptual worldview (or set of practices) is replaced, quickly and permanently, with another worldview or set of practices. For example, in 1450, a little-known man named Gutenberg invented the printing press and movable type—thus spurring a massive paradigm shift from a manuscript culture to a print culture.
Today we are moving at warp speed from a print culture to an electronic culture. This massive paradigm shift mirrors many others in the world of business and industry. What might the terms “corporate social responsibility” and “sustainable development” mean today, and how can a study of Machiavelli, Aristotle, Shakespeare and Thomas More help us understand these terms? How can this knowledge help your company become more prosperous and more ethical?
