Editorial: Philosophy of Management as Moving Beyond Critical Axiologies?


Sheard, S and Dibben, MR, Editorial: Philosophy of Management as Moving Beyond Critical Axiologies?, Philosophy of Management, 12, (1) pp. 1-6. ISSN 1740-3812 (2013) [Non Refereed Article]


Our view of philosophy of management, expressed previously (Dibben and Sheard, 2012; also Dibben, 2010), is that it allows a more complete and practically thoroughgoing rendering of topics pertinent to the thinking manager. That is, more complete and practically thoroughgoing than appears feasible to us from within the axiological confines in particular of what has come to be known as critical management studies (CMS). By comparison, we argue, philosophy of management concerns itself with the serious-minded and critically self-aware "opening up the field of inquiry, re-connecting management and the experience of managing with the genuineness of its place in Nature" (Dibben and Sheard, 2012: 7).
