This chapter uses the visual metaphor of the eye of a hurricane to discuss the formation and importance of ethical space to moral exemplars in a world of conflicting influences and moral pressures.
The author would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for Research in Ethical Issues in Organizations for their helpful comments of an earlier draft.
