Abstract:

Addresses the lack of any coherent intellectual perspective for establishing a theory of corporate accountability that is neither extreme right-wing nor anti-liberal. Insights derived from Rorty's Contingency, Irony and Solidarity are employed to develop a new perspective on the relationship between corporate activities and the public interest. This perspective is then joined with Dewey's view of social intelligence and Barber's notion of Strong Democracy to argue for an expansion of corporate social accountability.
