Towards an integration of humanism and business on a systems level Following the philosophical grounding, we now direct our attention towards the current state of humanistic values in the global economy, and develop a vision of the role and responsibilities that business has in society. The starting point is Peter Ulrich’s depiction of a humane society and the role of businesses within such a society. Amartya Sen’s contribution links Dierksmeier’s call for human freedom with Ulrich’s desire to civilize economic forces, presenting the well-known Introduction: humanism in business 9 capability approach as the way that development should be engendered.

Serving the central ruler was the raison d’eˆtre of the state, its economy, and its inhabitants, which often resulted in human costs. 2 Consequently, societies transformed, economies experienced an upsurge, wealth was created at unprecedented rates, and a growing number of citizens were able to pursue their life goals more freely. The industrial revolution that followed is often regarded as a direct result of these societal changes, supporting the argument that Liberalism’s empowering effects on the individual were at the epicenter of longlasting and profound progress in human development.

These four parts present a good overview of current academic thought and research on a more humane economy and the role of business therein. We wish to thank John Silva and Ilse Evertse for their tremendous interest and support in the review process. We also gratefully acknowledge the guidance of Paula Parish at Cambridge University Press.
