Featuring original contributions from some of the most exciting scholars writing at the intersection of philosophy and organization today, this accessible volume provides readers with a complete overview of this complex subject.

Ground-breaking and drawing on recent efforts in management and organization studies to take philosophy seriously, it critically engages with the way that philosophy might inform organization and illuminates a range of issues, including idleness, aesthetics, singularity, transparency, power and cruelty.

Exploring why philosophy matters to organization and why organization matters to philosophy, this book is essential reading for philosophy and business and management students as well as of interest to all those who seek to think seriously about the way their lives are organized.
