In this article, it is argued that the (necessary) use of ethics theories in management studies, calls for an explication and critical reflection over the values that are implied by them. Apart from the values of the ethical theories themselves, the researcher inevitably introduces additional values that we characterise as “values on the construction level of theory”. This is demonstrated with the example of economic ethics.
