Product description

Review

"It is common that texts about management pretend to be clever, and decorate themselves with a little philosophy in order to do so. In Kevin Morrell's book, we see the reverse, the intelligent and subtle use of Aristotle's philosophy to try to understand the nature of the challenges which management and governance presents us with. This is an important work, and I hope it will be widely read."
— Martin Parker, Editor in Chief of Organization: The Critical Journal of Organization, Theory and Society, University of Leicester School of Management, UK

"Organization, Society and Politics relates Aristotle's analysis of politics, ethics, rhetoric and poetics to the power, rhetoric and ethics of contemporary organization. Some of this has been done before, but rarely, if ever, has it been done so competently, critically, constructively and compellingly. Weaving together insights from several disciplines in arguing for Aristotle's continuing importance, Kevin Morrell here establishes himself as an incisive voice in contemporary Aristotelianism."
— Kelvin Knight, Author of Aristotelian Philosophy: Ethics and Politics from Aristotle to MacIntyre, Director, Centre for Contemporary Aristotelian Studies in Ethics & Politics (CASEP)
Faculty of Law, Governance & International Relations, London Metropolitan University, UK
 
"Morrell amply demonstrates the relevance of Aristotle's thought to the twenty-first century world. By combining Aristotelian philosophy with detailed case studies he suggests fresh approaches to the problems of modern organizations and of society at large. His book will appeal, not only to students of business and related disciplines, but to anyone with a serious interest in the ethical, social and political issues of our day."
— Richard Stalley, Professor of Ancient Philosophy, University of Glasgow, UK
