French is the author of twenty-one books on a wide range of topics in ethics, metaethics and applied ethics. A number of his papers are translated into Chinese, Japanese, German, Italian, French, Serbian, and Spanish. French noted that Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in his concurring opinion that corporate speech is the speech of many individual Americans who have associated in a common cause, giving the leadership of the corporation the right to speak on their behalf. French argued that corporations do not speak for their employees, stockholders, or others affiliated with them.
Peter French, drawing on his extensive experience in the fields of business and applied ethics, has created a comprehensive view of corporate ethics that focuses on the nature of a corporation, how it is defined, and who are the players. By introducing the idea that corporations-not just the people running them-are moral actors, he offers a unique theory of a corporation.

Corporate ethics are a set of beliefs to which a company adheres that govern its behavior in the ways it conducts business. Some corporations have well defined ethical parameters and others don’t, or they sacrifice ethical behavior to profit and determine that gaining profit and power are the most desired motives. When discovered in this type of activity, there is often a strong backlash that results in losing profits.
