Summary The Handbook of Philosophy of Management addresses the philosophical foundations of management in theory and practice. It covers most established branches of philosophy, including ethics, aesthetics, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of research methodology, political and social philosophy, and philosophy of science. As philosophy provides a meta-framework for moving beyond paradigm fragmentation within management research and education, this allows researchers and practitioners to find harmony (and discord) in the perspectives revealed by a philosophical lens. The Handbooks broad scope maps out the field and provides a forum where philosophy can be meaningfully applied to the study of management in all its forms. The original, peer reviewed research published here sheds new light on the complexities of management theory and practice, beyond what hitherto has been possible with the sole application of the social sciences.
