Philosophy of Management special issue: Do Managerial Practices Need Philosophy?
Among the various disciplines adjacent to management theory and having a word to say on managerial practice, philosophy is at the forefront since it can offer a wide theoretical angle and a set of encompassing concepts that can account for various business practices. Instead of focusing on management theories blending and influences, this special issue intends to draw attention to managerial practices. While numerous studies deal with the philosophical, primarily ethical, approach of managerial practice, very few inquire into its very usefulness. Do managerial practices need philosophy?
While this special issue aims to understand “if,” “how,” and “why” philosophy can shed light on managerial practices, contributions from all philosophical schools, traditions, methodologies, subdisciplines will be considered as there is a high interest in including in this special issue a large variety of perspectives. It would be a plus to publish opposite philosophical perspectives underlying fundamental philosophical disagreements on interpreting business practices. Also, proposals can be submitted in a large variety of forms: case studies, illustrations, comparisons, explanations, analysis, or critiques.
Guest editors: Marian Eabrasu (EM Normandie Business School) and Erwan Lamy (ESCP Business School). Submission deadline 30 September 2021.
