This thesis examines the utilisation of moral philosophy as a means by which to explore conflicts within organisations, focusing specifically on geographically diverse work teams. In order to establish a comprehensive theoretical framework, the study incorporates the notions of dignity and organizational form as presented by Killmister (2020) and Adler (2002), respectively. By aligning the moral philosophies of agents along a shared axis, it becomes possible to delve into the philosophical conflicts that arise between the ideal types of individuals, teams and organisations. Subsequently, these philosophical conflicts are contextualized within three thought experiments, in an attempt to contribute to academic discourse surrounding conflict within organisational behaviour and management literature. While Western philosophy serves as the primary source for this investigation, I propose the expansion of this framework to encompass normative moral philosophies prevalent in other regions.
