The common notion that leaders should be ethical, good, responsible andtrustworthy has been strongly challenged in the fields of business and politicsworldwide. Due to the high prevalence of unethical leadership by immediatesupervisors and decline in trust in leaders (Cowart, Gilley, Avery, Barber, &Gilley, 2014), scholars started to pay closer attention to the dark sides anddestructive aspects of leadership. Many different concepts are suggested todefine the dark side of leadership, and each of them captures similar butdistinct dimensions. In this vein, Einarsen and colleagues’ (2007) constructiveand destructive leadership model serves as an umbrella concept fordifferent types of dark sides of leadership, covering concepts which havebeen studied separately such as abusive supervision, tyrannical leadership,petty tyranny, toxic leadership and leader derailment. The present chapteraims to provide a summary of the definitions of these interrelated constructsto acknowledge some other leadership (e.g., paternalistic leadership, pseudotransformationalleadership) and personality styles (e.g., Machiavellianism,narcissism) that have not been considered in this framework and to providesuggestions for future research.

The Use of the concept of intrinsic value in anthropocentric and non-anthropocentric approaches in environmental ethics: a metaethical investigation
Aydın Bayram, Selma; Ceylan, Yasin; Department of Philosophy (2016)
The concept of intrinsic value is one of the most disputed concepts of ethics, and in particular, environmental ethics. The traditional approaches towards nature are anthropocentric, attributing intrinsic value merely to human beings. Nowadays, environmental philosophers mostly try to distance themselves from anthropocentric attitudes, and they introduce ethical reasons, which do not consider nature merely instrumentally valuable. In general, environmental ethicists are prone to appeal to the concept of ‘in...
A Sociological study of corporate social responsibility: a Marxist perspective
Karaca Akbaş, Eren; Topal, Çağatay; Department of Sociology (2012)
The main concern of this thesis is to problematize the so-called mutually beneficial relationship between free market mechanism and common good through the debates around Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Despite the social problems deepened by the free market, capitalist discourse attempts to justify itself by adopting some ethical concerns. However, it should be recognized that these attempts including CSR constitute market-based ethics. Trying to move beyond the existing critical literature on CSR, ...
An inquiry concerning the place of emotions in virtue ethics (a comparison between Aristotle and Kant
Yazıcı, Aslı; İnam, Ahmet; Department of Philosophy (2005)
This dissertation examines the claim that, unlike utilitarianism and deontology, virtue ethics ascribes a positive role to emotions in moral evaluation by taking them as the constituents of moral goodness and moral value. I wish to identify the limit and scope of this claim and to show what kind of emotion theory is suitable for explaining the essential features of virtue ethics. To do so, I defend some kind of cognitivism, the cognitive-affective theory of emotion, as the most suitable theory for virtue et...
Epicurus and Kant: a comparison of their ethical systems
Kutan, Ali Haydar; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2010)
In this Study, the empiricist ethical system of Epicurus and idealist ethical system of Kant will be compared. Kant maintains that as Epicurus’ ethics regards morality as a means for the attainment of happiness, it is nothing but a self-love ethics. He, for this reason, calls Epicurean morality “selfishness.” According to Kant, the maxims of happiness can be known only through experience but he says, experience can never produce a law which is universal and necessary. He contends that as Epicurean ethics ha...
