This article describes the approach to business which can be found the work of Wojciech Gasparski. A special stress is put on the fact that professor Gasparski, himself a prominent representative of Polish praxiology, makes use of the basic praxiological premises. According to this theory business is seen as something performing its basic, 'technical' function which consists in the maximisation of so called owner's value. It does not mean that ethical aspects of business or the problem of social responsibility of companies are being neglected. The main purpose is rather to build a solid basis for an ethical reflection on business. Wojciech Gasparski builds a 'minimal business ethics', which does not create an Arcadian vision of business, but tends to propagate professional standards in this field, already accepted in many European countries.
