Contributions on the relevance of Habermas to modern management theory and
practice will be most welcome to this new journal...

The Journal of Philosophy of Management
First Issue early 2001

Reason in Practice offers an independent, refereed forum for philosophers,
theorists and management practitioners to apply philosophical scrutiny to
management theory and practice. It seeks to define and develop the field of
philosophy of management and is directed to philosophers working in all
traditions. It will be published in English three times each year.

The journal will focus on central philosophical issues of management in
theory and practice including:

o Presuppositions of management including theories of nature, human nature,
rationality, knowledge, legitimacy and rights

o Core concepts in management such as leader, vision, organisation,
stakeholder, motivation, value, effectiveness, work

o Representations of management in different media and managerial myths

o Management methodologies, for instance decision-making, control,
organisation design

o The use of philosophical techniques and skills in management practice such
as dialogue, enquiry, conceptual analysis

o The application of philosophical disciplines to issues facing managers
including organisational purpose, performance measurement, the status of
ethics, employee privacy, limitations on the right to manage
