Philosophy of Management 2018 is the 13th in a series of conferences open to all. It will be of special interest to philosophers, management researchers and teachers, consultants and practising managers.

The 2018 Philosophy of Management Conference at the University of Greenwich will be shaped around a number of standing tracks and a range of special tracks.

The standing tracks spring from the ongoing Springer Handbook of Philosophy of Management project. They are intended to help shape the way in which Philosophy of Management is seen as a field of inquiry in an enduring sense.

The special tracks are intended to offer participants the opportunity to explore applied topics that are very much contemporary in nature.

The standing tracks for Philosophy of Management are as follows:

  • Aesthetics of Management
  • Epistemology of Management
  • Metaphysics of Management
  • Moral Philosophy and Normative Ethics in Management
  • Philosophical Reflection on Management Science
  • Philosophy of Management Education and Research Methodology
  • Social and Political Philosophy in Management

The special tracks for this year's conference include:

  • Philosophy of Innovation
  • Ancient Philosophies and Management
  • Philosophies of Diversity
  • Dialogue
  • Ecological Management
  • Philosophy of leadership and coaching

Plenary events:

  • Keynote speaker: Dr. Kai Alhanen (Aretai, Finland) – Dewey, Foucault and Leadership
  • Socratic Dialogue session: facilitated by Kristof Van Rossem (SocratischGesprek, Belgium)‚Äč
