Philosophical Narratives for Managers

  • Steven Segal

Abstract

The aim of this book has been to identify, describe, analyse and bring out the significance of philosophical experiences in the context of management. It has demonstrated that managers do have philosophical experiences, that these are central to their practices as managers. The book has claimed that there are two dimensions to philosophical experience: firstly there is the level of developing a business feel, a feel for the situation that we are involved in. This feel develops in a non-cognitive way through the ways in which we are involved in the world. As we are involved in the world we develop a sense of familiarity with the world. This sense of familiarity forms the basis of our feel for the world. Often we are not even aware of the fact that we are developing a feeling for the world. Furthermore, this feel is not something inside of us but is between the world and us.
