    The Value of Autoethnography in Leadership Studies, and its Pitfalls.Jan Deckers - 2021 - Philosophy of Management 20 (1):75-91.
    The field of leadership studies frequently focuses on defining leadership traits in abstraction from the context in which leadership operates. The first aim of this article is to provide a brief overview of reasons why this might be the case. Reasons include: leadership studies being dominated by the perspectives of leaders; the lack of definition and visibility of followership studies; the status and limitations of much qualitative research; and a predominant focus on good leadership. Consequently, many people who experience the (...)

    Leaving Productivism Behind: Towards a Holistic and Processual Philosophy of Ecological Management.Pasi Heikkurinen, Toni Ruuska, Anna Kuokkanen & Sally Russell - 2021 - Philosophy of Management 20 (1):21-36.
    This article examines parallels between the increasing mental burnout and environmental overshoot in the organisational context. The article argues that there is a particular philosophy of management that connects these two phenomena of overshoot and burnout, namely productivism. As there are boundaries in all ecological processes and systems, the productivist aim of having ever more output and growth is deemed absurd. It is proposed that productivity as a management philosophy not only leads to mental ill-health in organisations but also to (...)

    Towards Ecological Management: Identifying Barriers and Opportunities in Transition From Linear to Circular Economy.Helen Kopnina - 2021 - Philosophy of Management 20 (1):5-19.
    This article will discuss the concepts of Cradle to Cradle and Circular Economy in relation to sustainable production involving philosophical debates on economic growth, and the risk of subversion of managerial practice to business as usual. The case study is based on the assignments submitted by Masters students as part of a course related to sustainable production and consumption at Leiden University in The Netherlands. Some of the supposedly best practice cases placed on the website of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (...)

  6. Theonomous Business Ethics.Payman Tajalli - 2021 - Philosophy of Management 20 (1):57-73.
    In this paper I engage the theonomous ethics of Paul Tillich to argue that morality is a matter of conviction and concern not determination of right or wrong, and moral imperative is not about doing what “right” is, rather it is the self-actualisation of individual through her intersubjective relationships. The motivational force behind self-actualisation stems from the strength of one’s hold on “ultimate concern”, and not the content of “ultimate concern” that maybe referred to by various names including God. The (...)

    Circular Economy – Reducing Symptoms or Radical Change?Amsale Temesgen, Vivi Storsletten & Ove Jakobsen - 2021 - Philosophy of Management 20 (1):37-56.
    In this article, we address why our management of the economy, community and business has led to global warming and we discuss the importance of worldviews, ontology, epistemology and axiology in the search for alternative paths of development. We do this by focusing on the concept of Circular Economy. Circular Economy is often presented as a solution to the problems of a globalized economy in the form of over-exploitation of resources, climate change and pollution of the environment. Within the mainstream (...)
