Show Notes

Work in Progress with Christopher Michaelson, discusses every working person’s work in progress, namely, our quest to be fully human in a working world that all too often makes us feel like machines, in which we often don’t even have time to think, and that, in the words of Studs Terkel, too often feels like “a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”

Our first podcast episode airs with host Michaelson and guest Carnegie Mellon Professor Tae Wan Kim discussing the ethical implications of artificial intelligence for business and society, through the lens of Ian McEwen’s recent novel, Machines Like Me.

This book review has also been published in The Journal of Business Ethics (JBE) to answer two questions: "Is this book worth reading?" and "What ideas or questions will this book illuminate for anyone with interest in business ethics?" 

To advance dialogue between scholars and the public about business ethics and society, this book review will be free to access at JBE for a period of 8 weeks, ending April 23, 2021.
