about

Phronesis and Quiddity in Management addresses the issue of the excellence in judgment-making, its concept and characterisation. Through a combination of Aristotle's phronesis and Izutsu's consciousness (Bewusstsein), the authors explore the concept of 'phronesis' (or its translation as 'wisdom' or 'practical wisdom') to emphasise its conceptual dependence on Aristotle. At the same time, however, this book also stresses another conceptual derivation from Toshihiko Izutsu's main work, Consciousness and Quiddity, in that it is inspired by the metaphysical thesis of the Japanese philosopher. This book investigates first into what constitutes excellent managerial skills centred on leadership revolving around judgement-making (rather than decision-making) and second into whether they can be taught.
